Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative
The Biomolecular Imaging Cluster is part of an Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative, undertaken in accordance with SUNY 2020 plan to hire 250 faculty members. The interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires are aimed at addressing society’s most vexing challenges through the collaboration of natural, life, and social sciences; technology; medicine; humanities; policy; business; and the arts. The positions are designated for faculty members whose research and teaching interests are interdisciplinary. The goals of this initiative are to strategically place Stony Brook University on the emerging frontiers of research and knowledge and to enhance our ability to shape new fields of discovery, learning and engagement.
Cluster Hires in Biomolecular Imaging
Imaging biological molecules is key to understanding their function, providing a starting point for rational drug design and protein engineering. Stony Brook University's investment in biomolecular imaging includes newly upgraded high-field NMR facilities, world-class computational resources, and proximity to the new third generation synchrotron facility at Brookhaven National Lab (NSLS-II). The Biomolecular Imaging cluster will recruit a total of five new faculty whose research interests span a range of imaging modalities including NMR spectroscopy, x-ray spectroscopy and imaging, ultrahigh resolution light microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy and positron emission tomography coupled with radiotracer synthesis. Academic appointments for cluster faculty will be based on their areas of research and will be in the Departments of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacological Sciences, and/or Neurobiology and Behavior.
The Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Stony Brook University invites applications for a faculty position at the tenured associate or full Professor level. Candidates doing innovative work in any area of biochemistry, molecular, or cell biology are encouraged to apply. We particularly welcome applications from candidates working at the interface of Cancer and Metabolism.
Candidates must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. and a strong record of significant scholarship and extramural funding. The opportunity also exists for the successful applicant to play a leadership role in the newly formed Biomedical Sciences Institute. The Institute will house multi-departmental collaborative teams of investigators and serve as the administrative hub for the Basic Science departments of Stony Brook Medical School.
Comprised of faculty in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine, the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology is an active, collaborative community of scholars with broad research interests dedicated to both scientific discovery and to education at undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels. Beyond the Department there are opportunities for collaboration with other research programs including the Cancer Center, the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, the Institute for Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery. In addition, the University maintains professionally staffed core facilities to support research including ones for proteomics, next generation sequencing, NMR spectroscopy, and microscopy.
Interested applicants must use Academic Jobs Online posting at (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6464) to submit a cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae including publications and past and current research funding, statement of research interests, summary of administrative and teaching experience, and arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the AJO website. Electronic submission through AJO is required. Questions should be addressed to email address firstname.lastname@example.org Application review will begin mid November 2015
