Faculty Position in Historic Preservation

The University of Southern California's School of Architecture seeks tenure track faculty in the area of historic preservation. Dean Qingyun Ma and our faculty recognize our unique potential for our School to address some of the most compelling questions in preservation today---particularly in regard to issues of the Los Angeles region, the American West, Latin America and the Pacific Rim.

USC is an internationally recognized research university. We are searching for new faculty who are able to balance research and/or practice with the demands of teaching. Faculty specializing in the area of Historic Preservation will be expected to teach within our Masters of Historic Preservation degree program, as well perhaps in some area of our other architectural degree programs (depending on faculty's area of specialization and credentials), including the advisement of a small set of graduate students with their thesis work.

The undergraduate program ranks in the top ten in America, offering a professional five year Bachelor of Architecture and a four year Bachelor of Science in Architecture, and boasts two Pritzker Prize Alumni, Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne. The School of Architecture currently offers several graduate degree programs: a Master of Architecture, a Master of Building Science, a Master of Landscape Architecture, and a Master of Historic Preservation, with interdisciplinary certificates in each area. Many of our students also participate in a range of study abroad offerings in Europe and Asia. The School of Architecture launched a new PhD Program in 2008-- with an initial focus on the building sciences and technology research area. The School intends to expand into other areas of architecturally-related research over the next few years, including the area of Historic Preservation.

Requirements for the position include a graduate degree in historic preservation or architecture or the equivalent and a proven record demonstrating teaching, practice and research. Candidates with either a PhD or critical design practice with proven excellence in the area of Historical Preservation are encouraged.

The University of Southern California values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment.
