Job Details

Harpur College of Arts and Sciences at Binghamton University seeks to appoint a lecturer to teach in the newly-approved Digital and Data Studies program. The program aims to provide liberal arts students with an immersion into digital literacy and data-inflected thinking, in addition to hands-on experiences with computational tools. This new program seeks to be accessible to students across Harpur College, at an entry level and in any major in the arts and sciences, regardless of their professional aspirations. More information on the program can be found here:

The program is committed to promoting socially and culturally responsible approaches to technology and an awareness of the impact of data-driven decisions and algorithmic processes, particularly on communities that are already marginalized. The college has set ambitious targets for increasing opportunities for historically underrepresented faculty members among its ranks and recognizes the importance of faculty diversity in advancing the goals of this new program. Applicants who are committed to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion as fundamental cornerstones of a public education and have experience working with diverse student populations are strongly encouraged to apply.

The lecturer will be responsible for teaching two of the required courses for the new minor, Data & Society and Digital Inquiry & Practice, in addition to electives in their domain of study, for a total of four courses per year. The lecturer will also serve as the Coordinator for the Digital and Data Studies minor, with the responsibility of administering the new program, recruiting and advising new minors, and promoting the program's offerings across campus. The lecturer will be appointed to one of the college's departments, as appropriate to their field of study and experience. This is a three-year appointment, with the possibility of renewal.

The lecturer should hold a PhD or another terminal degree in any discipline in the arts, humanities, social sciences, or sciences, and have experience in teaching computational methods, digital humanities, critical data studies, and/or digital scholarship in a liberal arts context. 

To apply, submit a letter of application describing research interests and teaching experience, in addition to a CV, and the names and contact information for three references. Applications received by December 10, 2021 will receive full consideration. The position starts on September 1, 2022, although an earlier start date would be possible.

The State University of New York is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.


Working at Binghamton University

Message on working at Binghamton University from President Harvey Stenger    


Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946, to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, N.Y., five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University.

Four years later, the college was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) and renamed Harpur College in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher, patriot and pioneer who helped settle the area west of Binghamton.

In 1961, the campus moved across the Susquehanna River to Vestal. Growing enrollment and a reputation for excellence soon led to the selection of Harpur College as one of four doctorate-granting University Centers in the SUNY system.

In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton, and in 1992, Binghamton University was adopted as our informal name.
