Faculty Position Organic Synthesis, Radiotracer Synthesis & PET Imaging
The Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University in conjunction with the Biomolecular Imaging Cluster seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant/Associate or Full Professor level to begin Fall 2017 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 a strong commitment to teaching undergraduate and graduate Chemistry. The new faculty member will join the Biomolecular Imaging Cluster, a cross-campus initiative that connects the Department of Chemistry with academic units in the Life Sciences and the School of Medicine.
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 School of Medicine is due to complete the construction of the Medical and Research Translation building in 2018, which will be a focal point for translational research and bioimaging, and will include a cyclotron and carbon-1 synthesis facility. Support for cross-campus collaborative research is also underpinned by the Institute for Chemical Biology and Drug Discover and the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, while the NIH-funded Chemistry-Biology Interface Training Program provides an additional level of connectivity between Chemistry, Life Sciences and the Medical School. Stony Brook is also 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.
