The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture seeks an experienced historian to teach architectural and urban history to undergraduate and graduate students. The candidate will teach the survey of world architecture, lead discussion sections, work with and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and offer elective seminars in the field of specialty. The SSA seeks an innovative, cutting-edge scholar who emphasizes interdisciplinary inquiry and focuses on place-based history rather than individual monuments, historical styles, or well-known architects. Historians of technology, infrastructure, cultural landscapes, the environment, world architecture, urbanism, or other similar fields are encouraged to apply. No geographic restriction applies, but the field of specialty must be in topics before 1850. The Spitzer School of Architecture is committed to social and sustainable concerns in practice, as well as to providing access to the finest education in the art, history and technology of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture to the broadest and most diverse student population. A prospective member of the faculty should be prepared to participate in and contribute to this lively intellectual atmosphere. The candidate should also expect to contribute to the development of a graduate program in architectural history.
The candidate must hold a doctorate in the history of architecture or urbanism and have considerable teaching experience, preferably in a school of architecture. Interdisciplinary, innovative, scholarship of exceptional quality is required, as is excellence and experience in teaching and a demonstrated commitment to teaching the history of architecture in global, urban and environmental contexts. A distinguished record of multiple publications (books, articles, reviews) is required. The candidate must also demonstrate commitment to and experience in teaching the core curriculum in architectural history. The application must include curriculum vitae, at least one course syllabus describing a survey, another describing an elective seminar, three publications, and a cover letter explaining interest in the position, teaching philosophy and research objectives. Three letters of reference are required and should be sent under separate cover to the chair of the search committee. The candidate should be prepared to give a public lecture and lead a seminar discussion with students as part of the application process. Appointment is anticipated for Fall 2013.
