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 Psychology at Binghamton University (SUNY) is in an active growth phase intended to expand the scope and impact of the research, teaching, service, outreach, and clinical activities we provide. Toward that end, we are seeking exceptional candidates as part of a cluster hire to recruit three established faculty whose research examines typical or atypical social, cognitive, and emotional development in the etiology and persistence of mental health problems across the lifespan. Preferred areas of research are at the intersection of environmental stress and biological/cognitive/emotional development and maturation. Adversity is broadly construed as a range of determinants relevant to typical versus atypical developmental trajectories impacting cognitive and mental health outcomes. Individuals whose research examines environmental stressors, including structural inequities, on biological, cognitive/neural, and emotional development within a lifespan approach (focusing on early, middle, and/or late life) are especially encouraged to apply. Our goal is to further develop multidisciplinary teams of scientists with complementary skill sets who can work collaboratively with each other and capitalize on existing faculty strengths to generate independent extramural funding and publish high-impact research with translational implications.


Successful candidates are expected to be appointed at a tenured faculty rank and could affiliate with any of our three areas (Behavioral Neuroscience, Clinical Science, and Cognitive Psychology). We are interested in candidates with an established record of research leadership in the areas listed above. Specific scientific approaches are open but will be expected to reflect the current state-of-the-science, including contemporary neuroscience approaches applied in either human participants and/or laboratory animals. Scientists with a demonstrated history of multidisciplinary collaboration and success will be reviewed most favorably.


The Department of Psychology is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Applicants who share this goal and who are members of underrepresented groups, women, veterans, and/or persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Binghamton is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.



Requirements:


Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, or a related discipline. They must have an active program of research as demonstrated by a history of peer-reviewed publications and extramural funding. Finally, they must have professional qualifications commensurate with appointment at the (tenured) Associate or Full Professor rank. Experience in teaching undergraduate or graduate courses is preferred.

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.
