    The First-year Research Immersion (FRI) program is the foundation of Binghamton University’s objective of giving every science and engineering major the opportunity to complete 2-3 course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs, high-impact learning practices), prior to graduation and at least one CURE early in their college career. The FRI program collaborates with every STEM department and many offices across campus utilizing a 3-pronged approach: a) the FRI provides a three-semester sequence of CUREs for each of ten interdisciplinary research streams for a total of 300 science and engineering first-year students each year, b) FRI assists with the transformation of current introductory and advanced lab courses to CUREs in collaboration with staff and faculty across campus, and c) FRI runs the Summer Research Immersion (SRI), a sequence of two intensive CUREs designed for students without research experience.

    Although involved in all of these aspects, the assistant director will be closely involved in the next phase of the FRI program which will involve a greater focus on program assessment and educational research studies to determine the features of linked CURE sequences that influence STEM persistence, and students’ self-efficacy, identity and professional skill development. The assistant director will play a key role in planning, overseeing and tracking results of the FRI and SRI programs as well as aid in imagining future program trajectories such as post-FRI and SRI experiences and program enhancements, which in turn will assist with overall recruitment, alumni relations, educational assessment and grant proposals (see attached job description for more information).

    All applicants must apply via Interview Exchange.

    Deadline for Internal Applicants: January 3, 2023
