The Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University (SBU) seeks to hire two (2)  instructional support technicians.

The Instructional Support Technician is the chemist who is responsible for technical support services for the General and/or Organic Chemistry instructional laboratories and other laboratory courses as may be appropriate.  Approximately 1,000 undergraduate students enroll in the introductory laboratory courses every semester.  The success of our teaching program is critically dependent upon the staff member’s ability to work with the faculty to prepare and test experiments and to provide a laboratory environment with functional instrumentation, accurately standardized reagents and adequate supplies for the scheduled experiments. Evening hours are required and the Instructional Support Technician needs to be flexible with the schedule.

Stony Brook University invites applications for three one-year, renewable, non-tenure track lecturer positions in the Department of Chemistry. This is a full-time, 10 month, non tenure-track faculty position at the lecturer level  to commence January 2023.  Stony Brook is a research university with a strong commitment to curricular innovation. The position includes opportunities for curriculum development and for training and supervision of teaching assistants in the Department's undergraduate chemistry courses. Initial assignments will likely be in our general chemistry or advanced chemistry laboratory courses, but may include duties in undergraduate lecture courses. A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Education or related fields are required. Previous experience administering large lab or lecture courses would be a plus. The positions will likely require covering courses taught in the evening. Candidates should submit a cover letter, a complete CV including a publication list and a statement of teaching interests, and have three letters of recommendation sent to: Lecturer Search Committee via (ID: 101219). Application review will begin November 14, 2022. Stony Brook University is an AA/EEO employer and educator and actively encourages applications from women and members of historically under-represented groups.

The Postdoctoral Associate will assist the Principal Investigator in the Department of Chemistry.  

Please visit the Stanislaus Wong's Group to learn more about the PI's department and research areas of interest. This current project will focus on the synthesis, structural characterization, and catalysis studies of novel nanostructured materials, and will involve experimental studies conducted not only at Stony Brook University but also at Brookhaven National Laboratory, as needed.

Ammonia (NH3), traditionally synthesized using the 20th century Haber-Bosch process, is primarily used to create not only fertilizer for food production but also explosives, pharmaceuticals, refrigerants, and cleaning products. The focus of this project involves the directed development of methods to devise a 21st century replacement for generating ammonia under preferably ambient conditions, implying the possibility for low energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions, through electrocatalysis. Hence, the successful candidate will possess relevant expertise not only in advanced synthesis techniques but also in the structural characterization methods, including a variety of complementary diffraction, microscopy, and spectroscopic techniques, relevant for the synthesis and application of novel inorganic nanoscale materials. It would also be highly desirable for the candidate to have had experience in conducting electrocatalysis measurements. Moreover, the candidate should have the ability to set up, to operate, and to learn novel instrumentation techniques and to effectively collaborate with other team members of diverse intellectual backgrounds. Specifically, expertise with synchrotron measurements would be especially useful. Finally, the candidate should be familiar with machine learning and multi-computational methods.  

The incumbent will conduct research and ensure that all experiments are appropriately conducted following the policies and procedures of Stony Brook University.

  • Within the predetermined research scope and methodology, conduct research experiments in the field of Chemistry.
  • Collect and analyze data, including periodical/literature search and utilizing specialized skills in related fields to analyze the collected data.
  • Participate/assist in manuscript writing for publication in scientific journals and/or presentations.  May also assist in grant writing.
  • Lab maintenance, including equipment maintenance and ordering of supplies as needed.
  • Other duties as assigned, which may include attending Scientific Conferences and Meetings.
