Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship (with opportunity for Tenure Track), Binghamton University
Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship That May Lead to Tenure Track at Binghamton University, Binghamton, New York
Start Date: Fall 2020
Binghamton University invites applications for two-year Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships. 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.
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 PRODiG 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 and women in STEM disciplines.
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. Postdoctoral fellows may become eligible for the PRODiG program if and when hired as tenure track faculty.
