We have the following job openings at our office in Amsterdam: Junior Researcher Circular and Social Sustainability.
In order to apply, please send your CV, motivational letter and portfolio to
Unsolicited applications are always welcome.


At NOAHH we focus on topics including circularity, flexibility, nature-inclusivity, polyvalence, flexible learning environments, and social and activity-based design. All these topics need more in-depth research and will culminate in publications, workshops, and lectures. To develop our ideas further we started our Evolutionaries research program two years ago with projects in China, Italy, and South Africa. We developed exchange programs with these countries in order to learn more about the typical social-economic conditions and their impact on public and cultural buildings.

The South African research program was initiated in December 2019 with a visit of the renowned South African architect Jo Noero in Amsterdam and was further developed with workshops and a publication set to be published at the end of this year.

NOAHH is looking for a junior architect/researcher in circular and social sustainability with affinity with South African public buildings to bridge between NOAHH and our South African partner institutes. We offer a highly dynamic international working environment with enthusiastic colleagues.
