Endowed Chair or Endowed Professor in the Institute for Advanced Computational Science
Applications are invited for an endowed chair position in applied mathematics and/or computer science in the Institute for Advance Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University. Candidates wishing to apply should have a doctoral degree in Applied Mathematics or Computer Science, though a degree in related fields may be considered. At least five years of faculty or professional experience is required with a demonstrated record of publications and research funding. The selected candidate is expected to participate in interdisciplinary program development within the Institute and to establish a research program with a solid funding base through both internal and external collaborations. Of specific interest is research in, for example, programming models, algorithms, or numerical representations that advance scientific productivity or broaden the benefit and impact of high-performance computing. The selected candidates will have access to world-class facilities including those at nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory.
The Institute for Advanced Computational Science ( http://iacs.stonybrook.edu/) was established in 2012 with an endowment of $20M, including $10M from the Simons Foundation. The current 11 faculty members will grow to 18 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 search will remain open until suitable candidates are found. All candidates must submit the required documentation online through the link provided below. Please input a cover letter, your curriculum vitae, a research plan (max. 2 pages) which should also describe how graduate and undergraduate students participate, a one-page statement of your teaching philosophy, a publication list, your funding record, and three reference letters to https://iacs-hiring.cs.stonybrook.edu.
