The English Department at Binghamton University invites applications for a Lecturer of Creative Writing (three-year renewable contract) who will serve as Associate Director of the Creative Writing program. This position will involve a 2-1 teaching load as well as administrative duties. Management and coordination of Binghamton University Center for Writer's vibrant Creative Writing program includes event planning and overseeing public readings and events, internal and external prize coordination, monitoring public relations, and managing the day-to-day activities of an active writing program. 

We seek a creative writer in any genre.  An MFA or PhD is strongly preferred, but not required. In addition to a strong publication record and an ability to teach Binghamton University creative writing courses, the candidate should have extensive administrative experience. In helping to administer the creative writing program within the English department, the successful applicant will show evidence of calm and readiness to be present for all events, an ease in problem solving and team building, diplomacy and skill in handling program logistics, strength in multi-tasking, and creativity in shaping an historically distinguished writing program.  

The Department of English seeks candidates who can contribute to Binghamton University's academic mission as a public institution, especially through commitment to diversity of perspective, intercultural understanding, and engagement with local resources and communities. 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 17,000 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.
