Job Description:

Budget Title: Postdoctoral Associate (SL-1)

Salary: $75,000

The Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship was established in 2018 to help the university recruit highly-qualified candidates for research and scholarship in disciplines where diversity is needed. The goal of the Postdoctoral Fellowship program is to develop top-tier candidates who may remain at Binghamton University in a tenure track capacity when their postdoctoral work is completed. Each fellowship appointment is up to two years.

A fellowship appointment will be made in the Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering & Applied Science for the 2022-23 academic year in one of the following departments: Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Systems Science & Industrial Engineering.

About Watson College:

The Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University stands committed to fostering a community that reflects our diverse society to ensure that its teaching, research, scholarship and outreach programs include and serve a wide range of individuals. We self-evaluate and self-critique our environment to recognize and mitigate power imbalances, improve our policies and programs and foster a culture of belonging. We strive for a community in which all backgrounds, contributions and perspectives are valued and respected.  In 2021, the American Society for Engineering Education honored Watson College with its Bronze-level award for its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Watson College is home to roughly 1,000 graduate and 2,000 undergraduate students, over 100 tenured and tenure-track faculty, and 60 staff.  On an annual basis, the faculty of the college conduct nearly $20M of sponsored research.

Fellows are appointed with the title of Postdoctoral Associate and will receive a $75,000 annual salary with a New York State comprehensive benefits package. There will be a research allowance for scholarly expenses and conference travel aimed at disseminating research findings. An allowance for moving expenses will be provided.


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.
