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 Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University (The State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor to begin spring or fall 2024.


Watson College 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.


Underpinning the technical, engineering, and computer science expertise of Watson College faculty, staff, students and alumni is an understanding that diverse and inclusive groups maximize potential, innovation, and impact. We, therefore, develop structures and opportunities that improve the experience of all students, especially those who are underrepresented in engineering and computer science. Watson faculty, staff, and students assist in cultivating a community of members that are conscious of barriers to social mobility, exhibit and act on empathy and compassion, and advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), both within the college and beyond.


Together, we learn, educate, innovate, and work toward a more just and inclusive future. We embrace and cultivate our diversity and thrive because of it.


We strongly encourage potential applicants who share these goals, especially underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities to apply.


The department will consider exceptional candidates in the broad area of energy storage, including but not limited to research in battery materials, modeling, and control that increase energy density and life cycle, provide fast charging and discharging capability, improve grid-forming capability, or storage integration in future energy markets. The position is open to candidates with material science, power electronics, or power systems backgrounds.


The successful applicant will be expected to develop an externally funded research program and have a commitment to excellence in teaching at the BS, MS, and PhD levels.



Requirements:


  • Must have earned Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or related field by spring or fall 2024
  • Must have strong communication skills
  • Must have a strong commitment to teaching and research
  • Should have a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

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

Binghamton as an institution is dedicated to higher education, one that combines an international reputation for graduate education, research, scholarship and creative endeavor with the best undergraduate programs available at any public university.

We are an academically selective community that shares ideas across departments, disciplines and borders. We encourage faculty, students and staff to ask unexpected questions, foster open dialog and develop innovative solutions to important problems.
