Responsibilities & Requirements
The Institute for Advanced Computational Science (
) was established in 2012 with an endowment of $20 million, including $10 million
from the Simons Foundation. The current eleven faculty members will double in number
over the next few years to span all aspects of computation with the intent of creating
a vibrant multi-disciplinary program. IACS seeks to make sustained advances in the
fundamental techniques of computation and in high-impact applications including engineering
and the physical, life, and social sciences. Our integrated, multidisciplinary team
of faculty, students, and staff overcome the limitations at the very core of how we
compute, collectively take on challenges of otherwise overwhelming complexity and
scale, and individually and jointly define new frontiers and opportunities for discovery
through computation. In coordination with the Computational Science Initiative at
Brookhaven National Laboratory, our dynamic and diverse institute serves as an ideal
training and proving ground for new generations of students and researchers, and provides
computational leadership and resources across the SBU campus and state of New York. The
selected candidate will participate in the development of events and programs associate
with the Institute and will be expected to establish a research program with a solid
funding base through both internal and external collaborations.

nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), a multidisciplinary research laboratory
supporting world class scientific programs utilizing state-of-the-art facilities such
as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, the National Synchrotron Light Source, and
the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, and the New York Blue IBM BG/L+P supercomputer,
owned by Stony Brook and managed by BNL. Stony Brook is a partner in managing the
Laboratory for the Department of Energy, and is the largest institutional scientific
user of BNL facilities. As such, many opportunities exist for collaborative research,
and in some cases, joint appointments can be arranged.
