Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Our unique character – shaped by outstanding academics, facilities and community life – promotes extraordinary student success.

Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 17,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.

Increasing campus diversity is one of Binghamton University’s most important strategic priorities. Binghamton is meeting this challenge with the establishment of a program of Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships that will allow the university to better recruit highly qualified candidates for research and scholarship in disciplines that have found it difficult to attract a diverse faculty. This fellowship program mirrors the goals of the SUNY faculty diversity program which advance diversity and inclusive excellence by encouraging the recruitment, retention and promotion of outstanding scholars from different backgrounds, including individuals from groups who have historically been underrepresented in higher education

Our goal is to develop top-tier candidates when faculty positions appear in these departments, so that they may remain at Binghamton in a tenure track capacity when their postdoctoral work is completed.  Each fellowship appointment is up to two years.

Compensation and Allowances:

Fellows are appointed with the title of Postdoctoral Associate and will receive a $50,000 annual stipend with a benefits package. There will be a research allowance, of up to $13,000 per year, that may also be used in support of conference travel to disseminate research findings.

Responsibilities:

The fellows are expected to conduct original research appropriate to the department wherein they will be appointed, to publish scholarly work as a result of this effort, and to teach or co-teach one or more courses per year as the instructor of record.

Fellows will receive formal mentoring in research and teaching, as well as receive constructive feedback throughout the appointment in an effort to improve their candidacy for a tenure track appointment. 

Persons interested in this position should apply online.

Please submit:

  1. Cover letter that describes your research and teaching interests.  This letter should identify a department that you would envision conducting your research and teaching, along with titles/rubrics of two or three possible courses you are qualified to teach
  2. CV (curriculum vitae)
  3. Three confidential letters of recommendation
  4. Letter describing how your appointment would contribute to enhancing the diversity and climate of the department, school, and university

Review of complete applications will begin on February 15, 2019 and continue until the positions have been filled.
