Professor, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor in Landscape Architecture History

An open-rank faculty position for a distinguished scholar in Landscape Architectural History is available in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD). Our preference is for a candidate whose record of scholarship and teaching is commensurate with an appointment at the level of full professor, but we will also consider applications for appointments at other ranks.

We seek candidates qualified to offer graduate-level instruction in the history and theory of landscape for professional, post-professional, and doctoral candidates (DDes and PhD). A Ph.D. in landscape architectural history and theory or related fields such as environmental history, architectural history, or urbanism is required. The field of specialization is open, although preference will be given to candidates whose research interests focus on the modern period broadly construed.

Basic Qualifications

Applicants should have a strong scholarly record of publication with evidence of impact in the field; previous teaching experience in a design school, graduate professional program in landscape architecture and/or an architecture-related discipline; experience advising doctoral students; and demonstrated capacity to play a leadership role in developing the landscape history/theory curriculum.

This appointment, anticipated to start in Fall 2017, is expected to be a full-time position at the level of professor, associate professor, or assistant professor. We will review applications on a rolling basis starting on November 15, 2016. Candidates should upload a letter of interest, current CV, teaching statement, list of references, and two or three significant published works, either articles or book chapters.
