Is it possible for a compound at a given set of ambient conditions to be thermodynamically stable but kinetically unstable?

If the compound is thermodynamically stable, it won't undergo a change, so no, this is not a possible situation. The converse (kinetically stable but thermodynamically unstable) is quite possible, though.
