The Chemistry department at Stony Brook University (SBU) invites applications for the College of Arts and Sciences' Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access (IDEA) Fellows Program (2022/2023). This is a full-time, 12 month, non tenure-track faculty position at the lecturer level at the annual salary of $70,000 including full benefits, to commence Fall 2022. The fellow will be a part of a mentored research environment and, with a successful and demonstrated contribution to inclusion, diversity, and equity, will be invited to join the tenure-track faculty at Stony Brook University after two years [24 months of fellow support]. Candidates must have demonstrated plans to contribute to inclusion, diversity and equity, excellence in innovative research and potential to participate in the teaching mission of the Chemistry department. The successful candidate will be expected to be an effective interdisciplinary teacher and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels to guide research and professional development, and be an active participant in community outreach activities. The position description and application guidelines can be found at:

Faculty in the SBU Chemistry department benefit from partnerships with Brookhaven National Laboratory, the SBU Renaissance School of Medicine, the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, and the SBU Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS). Together these provide an excellent environment and unique facilities and infrastructure for  advanced materials, chemical biology, and computational chemistry. We invite applications from both experimentalists and theorists in all areas of Chemistry, with particular interests in the following strategic areas, broadly defined: (1) molecular tools to address health disparities; for example, new approaches and strategies to understand, treat, or diagnose diseases that disproportionately impact certain patient populations; (2) chemical approaches to address energy and environmental challenges; including sustainable materials, energy storage, photocatalysis, recyclable polymers, and tools to probe atmospheric chemistry. Affiliate or joint appointments with related departments is possible if this is of interest to the Fellow. If a Fellow requires laboratory space or major equipment, identification of potential faculty sponsors would be welcomed in the research part of the application or in the cover letter.

Review of applicant files will begin on September 30, 2021 and will continue until the posting closes October 15, 2021. Inquiries may be directed to the College of Arts and Sciences, Office of the Dean . For this position, we are unable to sponsor candidates for work visas.
