The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center (MVAC) at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is seeking an Architectural Historian/Historian for our Cultural Resources Management team. MVAC has conducted archaeological and historical CRM projects since 1982, with a focus on the Midwestern United States. Clients include state and federal agencies, including Departments of Transportation, the United States Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; private engineering firms representing various infrastructure industries such as cell towers; various levels of local and regional government; and private interests. MVAC takes pride in providing our clients with high quality and timely completion of projects.

We seek an ambitious, self-motivated individual who is a "qualified architectural historian" meeting the following criteria: a graduate degree in architectural history, art history, historic preservation, or closely related field, with coursework in American architectural history, or a bachelor's degree in architectural history, art history, historic preservation or closely related field plus one of the following:

  1. At least two years of full-time experience in research, writing, or teaching in American architectural history or restoration architecture with an academic institution, historical organization or agency, museum, or other professional institution; or
  2. Substantial contribution through research and publication to the body of scholarly knowledge in the field of American architectural history.

Potential candidates should have a proven record of completing projects on time, within budget, and having reports accepted. Specifically, duties will include:

  1. Establish business rapport with established contractual networks and other potential regional clients
  2. Solicit and responding to RFP's and grant opportunities
  3. Prepare budgets and proposals
  4. Conduct historic/architectural Phase I/reconnaissance surveys, including accepted historic structures and survey reports (HABS)
  5. Conduct Phase II/intensive surveys, including accepted Determination of Eligibility documentation
  6. Complete accepted National Register of Historic Places nominations

MVAC's mission encourages both research and public outreach, and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to explore professional development through conferences and publication as well as public speaking and exhibits. However, the position is essentially self-funded, so these opportunities are dependent on grants and cannot impede completion of contracted CRM responsibilities.

This position is 100% time. Travel within the Midwest is required.

This is an Academic Staff position at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a full benefit package (http://www.uwsa.edu/hr/benefits/uben.pdf). To find out more about MVAC, visit our web page at http://www.uwlax.edu/mvac. La Crosse is a medium size city in the beautiful unglaciated Driftless Area of the Upper Mississippi River Valley. To view the job posting on the UW-La Crosse website, visit http://www.uwlax.edu/hr/employment/Unclass/10MVC01-012009.htm

UW-La Crosse is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Women, persons of color, and individuals with a disability are encouraged to apply. If you have a special need/accommodation to aid your participation in our hiring process, please contact the committee above to make appropriate arrangements.

Employment will require a criminal background check. A pending criminal charge or conviction will not necessarily disqualify an applicant. In compliance with the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act, UW-La Crosse does not discriminate on the basis of arrest or conviction record.

Under Wisconsin Statutes, we are required to provide, upon request, a list of nominees and applicants. A written request can exclude one from this list. Persons agreeing to be final candidates (to be interviewed) will have their identities revealed as final candidates.

Open until 01/20/2009

How to apply:
Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae with three professional references listed, college transcripts (copies are acceptable), and two samples of report writing and/or accepted Determination of Eligibility forms/National Register of Historic Places forms (reports will not be returned unless specifically requested to do so). Materials should be sent to Vicki Twinde-Javner, MVAC, 1725 State Street, La Crosse, WI 54601 or at twinde.vick@uwlax.edu (5 MB size limit for attachments). All submissions should be postmarked no later than January 20, 2009.
