Genomics Faculty - Cluster Hire

As part of a new initiative in Genomics, Stony Brook University invites applications for six tenure-track faculty positions in the broad areas of genomics, sequencing, and informatics.

We are seeking candidates with interest and expertise in using high-throughput sequencing and other modern genomics tools to answer questions related to the ecology and the physiology of living organisms, as well as candidates interested in developing new methods and approaches to generate and analyze genomics data. Positions may be filled in coordinated sets; e.g., the simultaneous hire of faculty with expertise in experimental genomics/sequencing and faculty with expertise in informatics.

Academic appointments for cluster faculty will be based on their areas of research and will be in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, as well as in the departments of Ecology and Evolution, Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science.
