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.
Each fellowship appointment is up to 2 years with the potential for a tenure-track appointment post-fellowship. 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 and travel allowance of up to $13,000 per year.
Specifically, we are interested in applications from individuals with a background in education, human development, social work, public administration, higher education, or related disciplines. We are especially interested in scholars with programs of research that are interdisciplinary and community-based.
