Location: Binghamton, NY Category: Faculty Posted On: Fri Nov 8 2019 Job Description:
Binghamton University, State University of New York (SUNY), invites applications for an assistant professor (tenure-track) joint position in Psychology and Africana Studies, with tenure-home in Psychology, to start in Fall 2020. The search committee is interested in candidates conducting either basic or applied research in diversity science, which extends the boundaries of current psychological theory and creates new discoveries about the unique psychological processes relevant to the experiences of diverse populations. We are especially interested in candidates whose research addresses disparities in mental health access and care. This focus may be broadly interpreted, including identifying trends, causes, and remedies to the disparities in mental health services. This may also include understanding the barriers in receiving needed mental health care; the potential developmental, cognitive, neural, and physiological processes that serve as important markers of mental health in different cultures; or the development of empirically based strategies for reducing disparities in mental health access and outcomes. The successful candidate will join a productive, enthusiastic and interactive faculty and will contribute to both undergraduate and doctoral student supervision and instruction.
Binghamton University strongly supports and encourages trans- and inter-disciplinary collaborations across departments and colleges. Both the departments of Africana Studies and Psychology are in the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences. Harpur College is spearheading a new multi-year cluster hire initiative in the thematic area "Critical Studies in Race and Inequality." Harpur seeks to build a network of scholars who are committed to conducting research on race, racism, ethnicity, social justice, power, and structures of inequality in their diverse fields of specialization. The College is particularly interested in appointing faculty members who are deeply connected to and integrated into the communities that they study, as a means to build on the strong tradition of engaged scholarship at Binghamton University. More information about this initiative is located on the Cluster Hire webpage: https://www.binghamton.edu/harpur/research/cluster-hire.html
The Departments of Africana Studies and Psychology are dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment.
