About the opportunity

Do you want to build a solid foundation for your career as an architectural historian, historic preservationist, and National Historic Preservation Act expert?  Are you interested in working on resources ranging from log cabins to dams to mid-century modern buildings in the American West?  All while living with the great outdoors on your doorstep in Salt Lake City, Utah? 

SWCA is seeking an assistant architectural historian for our Salt Lake City, Utah office. The salary range is between $21/hour and $23/hour.

Currently, most of our staff are working remotely with the likelihood of transitioning back into a physical office later this year. Some projects may require travel and overnight stays.
