FRI Research Assistant Professor - Environmental Visualization

published Mar 7, 2023 7:44am

The First-year Research Immersion (FRI) program at Binghamton University invites applications for a full time Research Assistant Professor (also known as the Research Educator) position, to begin August 2023. This is a unique 10-month non-tenure track faculty position that directly combines teaching and research. This position is for the Environmental Visualization research stream (open to Ph.D.'s with a geospatial, geophysical, and remote sensing background on research in one or more fields in the broad discipline of Earth and Environmental Sciences).

FRI Environmental Visualization is a program in which a Research Educator guides first-year and second-year students in innovative research that advances the field. The Research Educator shapes the research theme. For example, past FRI cohort research projects in this research stream have employed remote sensing techniques to focus on monitoring harmful algal blooms, detection of landmines and unexploded ordnances, tick and Lyme disease modeling and more. This position will entail guiding student cohorts (~30 per cohort) through authentic research experiences and, in doing so, will help students develop the professional skills desired by graduate schools and employers. Within that process and working with faculty stream collaborators, the Research Educator maintains and/or expands their own research program. Faculty stream collaborators include Carl Lipo, Alex Nikulin and Jeffrey Pietras. More detail about the FRI program is available at our web site:

The position is formally advertised at Binghamton University's Interview Exchange:
Environmental Visualization Research Assistant Professor

Application review will begin March 30th.
