Position at University of Mary Washington

From: Lisa Young <conserveit>
Date: Tuesday, September 28, 2004
Assistant Professor
Department of Historic Preservation
University of Mary Washington

The Department of Historic Preservation at the University of Mary
Washington invites applications for a new, full-time, tenure-track
assistant professor position in Conservation, beginning in August,
2005.  Candidates are required to possess a graduate-level terminal
degree in the conservation of cultural property and have completed
coursework, work experience, and/or a second degree in historic
preservation or a related field by the hire date.  Prior teaching
experience and membership in The American Institute for Conservation
of Historic and Artistic Works is highly desirable.

During the first year, the successful candidate will be expected to
teach an introductory preservation course as well as develop
additional courses related to conservation.  Preference will be
given to candidates with the ability to teach other existing courses
offered in the department.  The normal teaching load is 12 credits
(4 courses) per semester.  Additional responsibilities of the
position are: management of laboratory space, student advising, and
participation in departmental and university service.

The University of Mary Washington (formerly Mary Washington College)
was one of the first academic institutions in America to establish
an undergraduate curriculum in historic preservation and the first
to establish an independent Department of Historic Preservation -
now the largest undergraduate program of its kind in the nation. The
department offers an interdisciplinary major that acquaints students
with a broad range of preservation activities, methods and
theoretical perspectives.  This new position represents an exciting
opportunity to expand the program's course offerings and objectives.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, December 10,
2004 by 5 pm. Postmarks will not be honored.  Candidates should
send a letter of application detailing teaching and research
interests, curriculum vitae or resume, and contact information for
