Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative

The Coastal Zone Engineering and Management is part of an Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative, undertaken in accordance with SUNY 2020 plan to hire 250 faculty members. This interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires are aimed at addressing society's most vexing challenges that require a broad understanding of ocean processes and human interaction with the sea. Special emphasis would be directed towards the important societal issues of the region, such as transportation, offshore renewable energy, water quality, and our ability to monitor and simulate the ocean’s properties and functioning as well as the consequences societal choices. The positions are designated for faculty members whose research and teaching interests are interdisciplinary. The goals of this initiative are to strategically place Stony Brook University on the emerging frontiers of research and knowledge and to enhance our ability to shape new fields of discovery, learning and engagement.

Cluster Hires in Coastal Zone Engineering and Management

Sustainable development and management of natural resources in coastal areas requires a sound scientific understanding of the global and local drivers and their complex interactions that affect natural resources. This cluster in coastal ocean engineering would (1) foster a broad understanding of ocean processes and human interaction with the sea, (2) further develop a program of applied research and education ranging from the near shore to the deep sea, and (3) will inculcate a deep appreciation of adaptive and ecosystem based management, an awareness of regulatory requirements and modern environmentally-sensitive engineering solutions with an emphasis on sustainability. Special emphasis would be directed towards the important societal issues of the region, such as transportation, offshore renewable energy, water quality, and our ability to monitor and simulate the ocean’s properties and functioning as well as the consequences societal choices.
