116 Can I accept a tenure track university position under the premise that I will complete the first 18 months on a J-1 visa as practical training, then return to home country for 2 yrs., and then come back?

I don't see why not. However, for you to come back, you must ensure that
one of the following happens
(1) Your employer is willing to wait for 2 yrs. and keep the position
open and is willing to sponsor you for an H-1 visa for you to return
to the USA.
(2) You have applied for a waiver of the HRR (and you are reasonably
certain to get it). Then you can have your employer sponsor you for
an H-1 visa.

If I was in your situation, I would pursue the second option. Try for a
waiver while you are on the practical training and convert to the H-1 visa.
