Stony Brook University Department of Pharmacological Sciences

*Tenure-Track Structural Biology / Imaging Faculty Position in Conjunction
with the Interdisciplinary Biomolecular Imaging Cluster Hiring Initiative*

The Department of Pharmacological Sciences (
http://www.pharm.stonybrook.edu/faculty_research/overview) at Stony Brook
University seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the
level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. Candidates must have an
M.D. and/or Ph.D., at least two years of postgraduate research experience,
and an outstanding record of research accomplishment. This search is
intended to recruit investigators with translational research programs that
make use of *NMR, Cryo-EM, or positron emission tomography (PET) coupled
with radiotracer synthesis approaches* to pursue fundamental questions
relevant to health-connected fields such as cancer, neuroscience,
metabolism, and infectious disease. Senior candidates should also have a
record of success with extramural funding and training of students and/or
fellows. Applicants must be eligible for a faculty appointment in
accordance with the criteria established by the School of Medicine
(Criteria for Appointment, Promotion and Tenure.)

The Department has pre-doctoral and MSTP training grants, a broad
infrastructure for research investigation, and newly renovated lab space
housing structural biologists with expertise in NMR and x-ray
crystallography. Additional structural biologists and PET imagers are found
in the Departments of Biochemistry, Physiology, Chemistry, and
Microbiology. With the on-going NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant awarded to the
University and the recent and largest gift ever to public higher education
in the State of New York, Stony Brook University is embarking on a
transformational expansion of the biomedical research enterprise. Diverse
opportunities for collaborative research on campus include the Cancer
Center, the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology, the Center
for Structural Biology, the Institute for Chemical Biology and Drug
Discovery, and the interactive Computer Science and Applied Mathematics

Imaging biological molecules is key to understanding their function,
providing a starting point for rational drug design and protein
engineering. Stony Brook University is becoming a leader in biomolecular
imaging through its newly-upgraded high-field NMR facilities including
Bruker 700MHz and 850 MHz instruments with cryogenic probes, a strong
program in computational structural and physical biology, world-class
computational resources, facilities for radiotracer synthesis and human
imaging, and proximity to the new third-generation synchrotron facility at
Brookhaven National Lab (NSLS-II). The Biomolecular Imaging Cluster has
already recruited junior faculty with expertise in super-resolution
microscopy and x-ray crystallography.

Stony Brook University, home to many highly-ranked graduate research
programs, is located 60 miles from New York City on Long Island's scenic
North Shore. Our 1,100-acre campus has more than 24,000 undergraduate,
graduate, and doctoral students and 13,500 faculty and staff. The
University is a member of the prestigious Association of American
Universities and co-manager of the nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory, a
multidisciplinary research laboratory supporting world-class scientific
programs utilizing state-of-the-art facilities. Stony Brook University is
also located close to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory with which it
interacts through graduate program training and faculty collaborations.

To apply, use Academic Jobs Online (
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5289) to submit a State employment
application, a complete curriculum vitae including publications, and a
3-page proposed research plan of current and future research, and have
three letters of recommendation submitted through the AJO site. The cover
letter should indicate whether the applicant wishes to be considered for
appointment at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level.
Applicants at the Associate or Full Professor level should add a summary of
past and current research funding and administrative and teaching
experiences. Electronic submission through AJO is required. Questions
should be addressed to Ms. Lynda Perdomo-Ayala, Department Administrator (
lynda.perdomo-ayala at stonybrook.edu). 631-444-3050
