As the School moves into a phase of growth and new leadership, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to help shape the direction of archival education for the 21st century, and to work with outstanding Masters and doctoral students.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a field related to the teaching and research areas of the position, or anticipate early completion of the doctorate within six months following the position start date. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in research and scholarly activity; have a publication record commensurate with their experience; and provide evidence of teaching effectiveness.
