About Binghamton University:

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 18,000 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.

Job Description:

The School of Management at Binghamton University (State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the area of Finance starting in mid-August 2022, subject to budgetary approval.

Candidates must have an earned PhD degree by the start of the appointment (mid-August 2022) and demonstrate the ability to conduct high quality research as evidenced by publication in top-tier journals and sound teaching credentials. The teaching component (2 + 2) requires delivering required/elective courses in Finance at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels. The ideal candidate will also contribute to the intellectual environment of the area.

School of Management:

The School of Management is accredited by AACSB and ranked among the top public undergraduate business programs. The school offers Bachelors, Masters, and PhD programs in Finance. The Finance faculty in the School of Management have a consistent record of scholarly achievement and published in high-quality journals that include Journal of Political Economy, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis.


Candidates must have a PhD degree by the time of appointment (mid-August 2022). Candidates with one or two years of experience will also be considered. However, this position does not seek to fill an associate/full position, and only publications that have the Binghamton University affiliation will count towards subsequent promotion and tenure.

A suitable candidate should have a research agenda in the behavioral area (consumer behavior/judgment and decision-making) and demonstrate high-quality research, as evidenced by their potential to publish in the top marketing journals.
