The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) at
Binghamton University, the State University of New York, invites
applications for the position of Visiting Assistant Professor of
Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention.
This is a fixed-term position with an initial appointment for the
2023-2024 academic year, and is renewable for a second year
(2024-2025), pending satisfactory performance evaluations, and with
the possibility of a third year (2025-26) depending on continuing
performance and need.
The position will receive a faculty berth in an academic department
appropriate for the successful applicant's terminal degree.
The three-fold mission of I-GMAP is: 1) to bridge the gap between
scholars conducting academic research on the causes, risks, and
mechanisms for reducing the occurrence of atrocity crimes and the
global community of prevention practitioners in both state and
non-state roles; 2) to break down barriers that prevent academic
disciplines from working together effectively; and 3) to bring all
the resources of a modern research university to bear to advance
atrocity prevention. The Institute offers a full range of research,
policy analysis, advocacy, convening, and academic programs,
including the Master of Science, the Graduate Certificate, and the
Undergraduate Minor in Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention.
The visiting position normally carries a teaching load of either
four or five courses per academic year, as determined by the
Co-Directors. Teaching will be in direct support of I-GMAP's
academic programs, including at least two of the core courses for
the Master of Science in GMAP: Comparative Genocides, and
Micro-Dynamics of Mass Atrocities. Other courses may be graduate
and/or advanced undergraduate courses to serve as electives for the
MS in GMAP.
I-GMAP welcomes qualified applicants holding a doctorate from any
academic discipline, provided that the applicant is able to
document a substantive connection to genocide and mass atrocity
prevention, broadly conceived. While not required, documentation of
substantial experience of collaborative work with non-academic
partners (such as consulting, policy analysis, work with
non-governmental organizations) is highly desirable.
The Visiting Professor of Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention is
invited to participate in the full range of I-GMAP activities,
including interactions with resident and visiting practitioners and
faculty fellows, and I-GMAP's annual Frontiers ofPrevention
The position carries competitive package of salary and benefits,
and includes a stipend in support of research, including
PhD in hand by time of appointment, documented teaching experience
in areas directly relevant for Genocide and Mass Atrocity
Prevention, documentation of teaching success.
