Tenure Track Faculty Search 2020
The Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University seeks to hire a tenure track faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to begin Fall 2020 with expertise in synthetic organic chemistry and with a strong interest in developing radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. The new faculty member is expected to establish, or have established a vibrant, extramurally-funded research program, and must have a Ph.D. from an accredited institution in chemistry or a closely related field, and postdoctoral experience. Candidates must have demonstrated excellence in innovative research and have a strong commitment to teaching undergraduate and graduate chemistry.
Stony Brook University has made a major investment in the facilities and instrumentation for PET imaging including the installation of a Siemens Biograph mMR human MR-PET scanner, human and preclinical PET/CT scanners, and construction of a GMP radiotracer synthesis lab for labeling with PET nuclides such as fluorine-18. In addition, the Medical and Research Translation building recently opened, which is a focal point for translational research and bioimaging, and which houses a cyclotron and radiotracer synthesis facility. Support for cross-campus collaborative research is underpinned by the Institute for Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery (ICB&DD), the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS), while the NIH-funded Chemistry-Biology Interface Training Program and an NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Award provide an additional level of connectivity between chemistry and departments across campus both within the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Medicine. Faculty in the department are also members of two DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research Centers. Stony Brook University is close to Brookhaven National Lab which operates the National Synchrotron Light Source II, and Stony Brook Medicine recently affiliated with the Mount Sinai Health System, providing new opportunities for collaborative science.
Candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae, including publication list, proposal research plans, and teaching interest. Applicants for Assistant Professor should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted electronically via AcademicJobsOnline (job#15121). Application review will begin in Fall 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Stony Brook University is an Affirmative/Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
