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 18,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.



Job Description:


The Department of Romance Languages at Binghamton University is seeking to hire a lecturer in Spanish, beginning in August 2022. This is a full-time position (three-year contract) with possible renewal. The teaching load is three courses per semester with the option to teach online during the winter and summer interterm for additional compensation. Competitive salary.


The instructor hired for this position will actively contribute to the introductory language sequence by teaching courses mostly at the elementary and intermediate levels. These courses are taught under coordination. Therefore, professionalism and collegiality are considered as important as enthusiasm for language instruction at the college level. Some of these courses meet three or four times a week, thus flexibility to respond to this scheduling need is required. Teaching courses at the advanced level is a possibility, contingent on departmental needs and curricular planning priorities.


Participation in departmental service is also expected. This typically includes student advising, organization of extracurricular activities, or participation in a committee. Therefore, the selected candidates should be enthusiastic about interacting with students outside the classroom and working with colleagues.


Moreover, the selected candidates should actively contribute to the University's mission of advancing a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, mentoring, and service, as well as through engagement with faculty, students, and staff.



Requirements:


Candidates should hold an MA or Ph.D. (or be ABD) in Spanish or other relevant fields, and be prepared to successfully teach language courses at the introductory and intermediate level, under the guidance of a coordinator and in close collaboration with colleagues. Experts in all fields are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with evidence of effective teaching at the university level. Applicants must have native or near-native fluency in both Spanish and English.

History

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.

Mission Statement

Binghamton University is a premier public university dedicated to enriching the lives of people in the region, state, nation and world through discovery and education and to being enriched by partnerships with those communities.

Vision Statement
