|Institution Type:||College / University|

|Position:||Assistant Professor, Associate Professor|
We seek to hire a tenure-track architectural historian at the Assistant or Associate (without tenure) level to join our small and collegial faculty. The History, Theory, Criticism program in MIT's School of Architecture and Planning was founded in the 1970s as the first PhD-granting program in a school of architecture, specializing in interdisciplinary research and teaching focused on the intertwined histories of art and architecture. We are interested in scholars focusing on periods from the Renaissance to the twentieth century; researchers from all geographic areas will be considered for this position.
MIT has a strong doctoral and design program, and applicants should be prepared to contribute to an interdisciplinary program that serves diverse, highly motivated students: professional design degree students, undergraduates majoring in a wide variety of fields, and master’s and doctoral students in the history of art and architecture. The PhD is essential, and applicants who also have training in architectural design or urbanism are strongly encouraged to apply.
MIT is committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. EOE.
