Salve Regina University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of Cultural and Historic Preservation starting September 2017. The successful applicant will teach in the Noreen Stonor Drexel cultural and historic preservation program, one of nine undergraduate programs recognized by the National Council for Preservation Education. Candidates should have expertise in teaching and practicing architectural history within a broad framework of historic preservation. Candidates who emphasize hands-on, experiential teaching and who employ current technologies (e.g., 3D architectural modeling, photogrammetry, Geographic Information Systems, building materials analysis) in their preservation practice are strongly encouraged to apply. While the geographic area of a candidate's research and practice is open, they should be committed to local community engagement through partnerships with the area's many preservation and cultural institutions. The successful candidate will work with the program's archaeologist to develop and teach courses covering architectural history, the principles and practices of historic preservation, laboratory applications, and special topics. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to teach classes and to collaborate with colleagues in the Art & Art History Department, of which the cultural and historic preservation program is a part.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Art and Architectural History, History, American Studies, or related field with a concentration in architectural history. Candidates should also have a demonstrated record of teaching, research, and publication, as well as a desire to conceptualize and teach courses that will prepare undergraduate students for entry into the preservation field or for admission to graduate school. The successful candidate will also have extensive experience in advising students and a record of placing students in graduate programs.
