We are particularly interested in candidates with a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. Historically underrepresented minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and veterans, are strongly encouraged to apply.

Binghamton University is one of four research universities in the State University of New York System and an R1 research institute. The Computer Science Department has well established Ph.D. and M.S. programs and an accredited B.S. program. The Department has been on a successful and aggressive growth plan in recent years. The Department currently has 33 faculty members, over 600 undergraduate students, over 350 MS students and about 80 PhD students. The NSF industry-university collaborative research center on energy-smart electronic systems and local high-tech companies such as IBM, Lockheed-Martin and BAE provide opportunities for collaboration. The university recently launched a new Data Science Transdisciplinary Area of Excellent (TAE), which will provide opportunities for collaboration across the entire campus. The Department is also part of a newly approved MS in Data Analytics degree program, together with several academic units on campus. The Computer Science faculty excels in research within the computer systems area and has a significant record of success, with 9 NSF CAREER awardees in its current faculty and significant annual research funding from a variety of agencies.
