The Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (SKuOR) at the Faculty of 
Architecture and Planning of Vienna University of Technology, Austria, has recently 
launched a Call for Interests regarding two short-term City of Vienna Visiting 
Professorship vacancies offered to deal with the annual topic 2010 'Urban culture, public 
space and the state - Politics and planning' in Vienna.

The call is addressed to two experts, one being rooted in the field of Know How (spatial 
planning/ spatial design, or similiar), the other one in the field of Know Why (urban 
studies, or similar). Both luminaries are thought to work together as an academic team 
consisting of one junior and one senior professor. 

In close cooperation with the direction of the SKuOR, this team will develop its focus at 
the interface between theory and practice to foster creative methods and a constructive 
understanding towards more explorative and innovative approaches in spatial research 
and spatial planning. 

This group of scholars consisting of both City of Vienna Visiting Professors and the local 
SKuOR team will develop and realize a joint annual programme as regards research, 
teaching and academic networking for the academic year 2010 (1st March 2010 bis 28th 
February 2011) in the combined thematic fields of urban culture and public space.

For further information regarding the call for interests, the profile of requirements as well 
as regarding the formal procedure of declaration of interests, please have a look at the
