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 PRODiG+ Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Fellowship is for two academic years, with a teaching obligation of one course per academic year in the area of the Fellow's research, and comes with a highly competitive compensation package. The area of research specialization is Social and Political Philosophy. The Philosophy Department will strongly support the Fellow's research with the goal of converting their position to a tenure-track assistant professorship at the conclusion of the fellowship. The standard teaching load for tenured and tenure-track faculty in the Philosophy Department is 2/2. 

The Fellowship is part of the SUNY PRODiG+ initiative that focuses on two goals: (1) increasing the number and share of excellent diverse faculty committed to advancing the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion; and (2) strengthening the pipeline for retention and support of these faculty. Eligible candidates must demonstrate personal, academic, and/or work experience engaging diversity, equity, and inclusion and/or a commitment to facilitating and enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in the campus community. Such experience may include, but is not limited to, an academic/scholarly track record focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion; work, volunteer/unpaid/community service; or related experience/expertise in serving underserved or vulnerable areas and/or populations. Also, candidates must be eligible to work in the United States without a visa sponsorship, and have a Ph.D. in Philosophy or related discipline from an accredited institution completed prior to the start date. 

The Fellow will join a vibrant intellectual environment. The Philosophy Department is home to the 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. The Fellow will be welcome to participate in colloquia, reading groups, and other department and graduate program activities, will have opportunity to interact with graduate students, and will be actively supported by department faculty, many of whom are likely to have partly overlapping research interests.

The Fellowship begins at the start of the 2024 Fall semester. To apply, please submit a letter of application, a detailed curriculum vitae that identifies three professional references, a note indicating eligibility according to the above requirements, and a writing sample. Applications should be submitted through the link below. 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, and finalists will be invited for on-campus interviews.

Applications received by March 6, 2024, will receive full consideration.
