Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative

The positions of Smart Energy Technologies (SET) are part of an Interdisciplinary Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative, undertaken in accordance with SUNY 2020 plan to hire 250 faculty members. The interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires are aimed at addressing society’s most vexing challenges through the collaboration of natural, life, and social sciences; technology; medicine; humanities; policy; business; and the arts. 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 Smart Energy Technologies (SET)

The Smart Energy Technologies (SET) cluster addresses the broad range of challenges of modern power generation, transmission, distribution, delivery and consumption, especially computational and smart grid issues. The challenges span distributed networking and distributed systems, cyber security, modeling of power grids, all the way to business and economic aspects of grid systems. The cluster will leverage Stony Brook's existing DoE Smart Grid Demonstration Project (jointly with LIPA and Farmingdale State College) and involving the Advanced Energy Center (ARTEC), Center for Wireless Information Technology (CEWIT), and Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technology and Society, Mechanical Engineering, and the College of Business—all brought together to build a world-class research and development (R&D) program in smart energy technologies. At Stony Brook, the R&D results can easily be transitioned to industry through the New York State Smart Grid Consortium (NYSSGC) and Stony Brook’s incubators.

During the next three years, the SET cluster will recruit faculty at all levels whose research interests span a range of topics related to smart energy technologies: business and economics aspects of grid systems; consumer, commercial, and industrial energy user technologies; green computing; grid cyber-security; power engineering; energy efficient electronics and opto-electronics, smart grid networking; smart energy generation and distribution; smart energy management and control systems; and smart energy modeling and simulation. Academic appointments for cluster faculty will be based on their areas of research, may span the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the College of Business, and may include one or more of the following departments: Applied Math & Statistics, Business, Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Technology & Society, as well as BNL. Joint appointments with other departments are possible.
