About Binghamton University:

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 students to international students. These classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.

Position Description:

The Philosophy Department at Binghamton University, State University of New York, is seeking applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor. The successful candidate for this position will have a strong teaching competence in Philosophy of Technology, with the ability to guide student work in this area at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The area of research specialization is open, though it is desirable that some aspect of the candidate’s research intersects with, is informed by, or is visibly progressing towards engagement with topics in Philosophy of Technology.

The successful candidate will be expected to play an active role in the department’s graduate program in Social, Political, Ethical, and Legal Philosophy (SPEL). SPEL is distinctive in supporting a diverse scholarly community engaged with value theory from multiple (including non-western) historical traditions as well as from a variety of contemporary approaches. Although we welcome qualified applicants from a full variety of research specializations, excellence in research and an appreciation of pluralism in philosophical inquiry are essential. The successful candidate will teach graduate seminars, supervise teaching assistants, serve on thesis and dissertation committees, direct graduate-level work, participate in department colloquia, and the like.

The teaching load for the position is 2/2. The successful candidate will be expected to regularly teach our introductory lecture course “Technology, Ethics, and Policy”, as well as other courses that contribute to Binghamton University’s large Philosophy, Politics, and Law major. The candidate will also collaborate in support of the Harpur College Digital and Data Studies minor. The ability to contribute to the philosophical breadth of our course offerings is welcome.

The Philosophy Department is committed to equity and inclusion and is working to increase diversity amongst its faculty. Members of groups historically underrepresented in the field and those from non-traditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service will be valued. Binghamton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

The position begins at the start of the 2024 fall semester. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in philosophy or closely related field in hand by time of appointment. To apply, please submit a letter of application, addressed to “The Search Committee”, a detailed curriculum vitae that indicates three professional references, and a writing sample. Applications should be submitted through the following link: https://binghamton.interviewexchange.com/jobofferdetails.jsp?JOBID=167114. After an initial review of these application materials, selected candidates will be asked to submit additional materials such as a teaching dossier, and to have letters from their references submitted. Initial interviews of selected applicants will take place via Zoom in late December. Finalists will be invited for on-campus interviews in early 2024.

Applications received by November 1, 2023, will receive full consideration.
