Open Positions

Endowed Associate, Full Professor or Chair in the Institute for Advanced Computational Science

The candidate should have a doctoral degree in a related discipline (see list below). Demonstrated record of publications and research funding is required.   

Applications are invited for up to four tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of endowed associate professor or endowed chair (full professor) in the Institute for Advance Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University. Ten years of faculty or professional experience are required for a chair position along with a demonstrated record of publications and research funding. At least five years of faculty or professional experience are required for an associate position along with a demonstrated record of publications and a demonstrated potential for 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. Candidates chosen will have joint appointments and hold tenure in a department including at least: Applied Mathematics and Statistics; Biochemistry; Biomedical Informatics; Chemistry; Computer Science; Electrical and Computer Engineering; Linguistics; Materials Science and Chemical Engineering; Psychology; Sociology; or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. The selected candidates will also have access to world-class facilities including those at nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory. 

The Institute for Advanced Computational Science ( ) was established in 2012 with an endowment of $20M, including $10M from the Simons Foundation. The current 13 faculty members will increase to circa 20 over the next few years to span all aspects of data and computation with the intent of creating a vibrant multi-disciplinary program. IACS seeks to make sustained advances in the fundamental techniques of data and 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 data and 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 data and 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 attached to 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 The posting reference # is F-10020-19-04.
