The Presidential Diversity Early Career Fellowship was established in 2018 to help the university recruit highly-qualified doctoral candidates for research and scholarship who will contribute in a meaningful and measurable way to enhancing the diversity and inclusive environment of the University. The goal of the Early Career Fellowship program is to support and develop top-tier candidates who may remain at Binghamton University in a tenure track capacity and launch promising careers as independent educators and researchers when their fellowship is completed. Each fellowship appointment is for two years.

A fellowship appointment will be made in the Thomas J.

About Watson College:

The Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University is home to roughly 1,000 graduate and 2,000 undergraduate students, over 100 tenured and tenure-track faculty, and 60 staff. On an annual basis, the faculty of the college conduct nearly $20M of sponsored research in high priority areas of national importance including artificial intelligence, data science, robotics and autonomous systems, cybersecurity, high performance computing, advanced communication and wireless technologies, semiconductors and microelectronics, advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, advanced materials, clean energy, energy efficient systems, systems science and engineering, and more.

The Watson College stands committed to fostering a community that reflects our diverse society to ensure that its teaching, research, scholarship and outreach programs include and serve a wide range of individuals. We self-evaluate and self-critique our environment to recognize and mitigate power imbalances, improve our policies and programs and foster a culture of belonging.

We strive for a community in which all backgrounds, contributions and perspectives are valued and respected. In 2021, the American Society for Engineering Education honored Watson College with its Bronze-level award for its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Fellows are appointed with the title of Postdoctoral Associate and will receive an annual salary, up to a $75,000, with a New York State comprehensive benefits package. There will be a research allowance for scholarly expenses and conference travel aimed at disseminating research findings. An allowance for moving expenses will be provided.


The fellows are expected to conduct original research in cutting -edge areas relevant to the department wherein they will be appointed, to publish high quality, peer-reviewed scholarly work as a result of this effort, and to teach or co-teach one or more courses per year as the instructor of record.

Fellows will receive formal mentoring in research and teaching, as well as receive constructive feedback throughout the appointment in an effort to improve their candidacy for a tenure-track appointment.
