Job Description:

The Department of Political Science at Binghamton University (SUNY) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Race, Ethnicity and Politics with a particular focus on American Politics. A scholar whose focus, under the broader heading of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics, is on Urban and/or State and Local Politics is especially welcome. More specifically, we welcome applications from scholars working in one or more of the following substantive areas: inequity in voting rights and voting procedures, political geography and racial/ethnic redistricting, public health and criminal justice inequities facing minority communities, the effects of environmental degradation and the lack of public investment on minority communities, and minority public opinion and voting behavior.

This search is part of a multiyear cluster hire initiative by Harpur College of Arts and Sciences in the thematic area of "Critical Studies in Race and Inequality" that seeks to build a network of scholars who are committed to conducting research on race, racism, ethnicity, social justice, power, and structures of inequality. More information about this initiative is located on the Cluster Hire webpage:

The Department of Political Science is committed to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive community. Applicants who share this goal, especially underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply.
