Job Description:

The School of Management at Binghamton University (State University of New York at Binghamton) seeks to fill one position at the Associate/Full Professor level in the area of Leadership and Multi-Level Issues, starting in mid-August 2023, subject to budgetary approval.

Faculty in the Leadership and Organizational Science Area at Binghamton University have a strong collegial relationship and regularly collaborate on research topics that integrate micro/macro disciplines, leverage different methodological perspectives (e.g., qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method approaches), and utilize various multilevel analytical tools (e.g., WABA, RCM/HLM, MSEM, multilevel networks, agent-based simulation). We are seeking a senior established researcher who would complement this orientation, with a research focus in leadership and multilevel issues. Specifically, we are looking for a researcher with a strong methodological foundation and willingness to engage in multilevel research and with researchers focused on different/multiple levels of analysis.

Additionally, faculty in the Leadership and Organizational Science Area have published in high-quality journals that include Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Leadership Quarterly, Organizational Research Methods, Organization Studies, Organization Science, and Personnel Psychology, among others.

Professional Responsibilities. Teaching component is two courses per semester (2 + 2) and requires delivering required/elective courses in Leadership and Research Methods at various program levels and contributing to the doctoral program in Leadership and Organizational Sciences. The research component requires continued publication in high-quality, top-tier journals and the attainment, or potential to attain, major federal research grants (e.g., from NSF, NIH, DOD). Faculty are expected to participate in curriculum development and assessment, and engage in other service duties for the school and the college, both internally and externally.

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.
