Assistant Professor of Urban Studies and Historic Preservation

The Urban Studies Program and the Historic Preservation and Community Planning Program at the College of Charleston, in Charleston, South Carolina, announce an opening for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the areas of urban studies, urban planning, and historic preservation. The successful candidate should be prepared to teach the introduction to historic preservation course, the introduction to urban studies course, an upper-level course in urban planning, as well as other preservation and urbanism courses related to his or her areas of special interest. A Ph.D. is preferred, but qualified candidates with the terminal degree in their field will be given equal consideration. Applicants with interdisciplinary degrees as well as applicants with discipline-based degrees, such as political science, sociology, anthropology, history, planning or geography, are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will hold a joint appointment with equal teaching and administrative responsibilities in Urban Studies and Historic Preservation and Community Planning. Evidence of potential excellence in teaching, research, and professional service contribute to a strong application, which should include (1) a cover letter describing teaching experience and research agenda, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) one writing sample, (4) relevant sample syllabi, and (5) three letters of recommendation.

The College of Charleston, a public liberal-arts institution with 10,000 undergraduates, is the 13th-oldest institution of higher education in the country. Located in the heart of peninsular Charleston’s historic district, it has the largest undergraduate program in Historic Preservation in the country and the only one to integrate community planning with preservation. The College’s Urban Studies Program, founded in the 1980s and one of only two urban related degrees in South Carolina, is equally well established. A joint graduate program in historic preservation (M.S.) with Clemson University was inaugurated in the fall of 2004. The candidate will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the preservation programs.

The College of Charleston is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Hard copy applications must be postmarked by December 15, 2010.

Hard copy applications should be sent to Robert Russell, Director, Program in Historic Preservation and Community Planning, Department of Art History, College of Charleston, 66 George St. Charleston, S.C. 29424. Inquiries may be sent to both Robert Russell (russellr@cofc.edu) (843 953 6352) and Deborah McCarthy, Director, Urban Studies Program, (mccarthyd@cofc.edu) (843 953 6513).
