Four open faculty positions at Stony Brook University

Dear Department Chair, As part of the inaugural mission of the new Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University (SBU), we are advertising four new faculty positions: two endowed chairs and two junior faculty. For this search, each IACS faculty member will have a joint appointment with our institute and either the Computer Science or Applied Mathematics & Statistics departments at SBU. We would appreciate it if you could circulate the attached advertisement to all those you feel might be interested in and appropriate for the open positions. 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 and data-centric computing.

The IACS ( was established in 2012 with an endowment of $20M and the intent to make sustained advances in the fundamental techniques of computation and in high-impact applications including engineering and the physical, life, and social sciences. The current eight 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. Our goal is to generate ideas that will influence not only SBU but the state, the nation and our international research communities. We are looking for active, interdisciplinary thinkers who take intellectual risks and find excitement in developing and sharing ideas and technologies on a global stage. The selected candidates will have access to world-class facilities including those at nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Applications can be submitted directly through the Academic Jobs Online link found in the attached advertisement, which is also pasted here Thank you for your time.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?

How about choosing CS 493 during course selection?

Want the chance to invent something and receive course credit? Want to refine your ideas for your start-up before you graduate? Want to win prizes?
CS 493/494 are the courses for you! Beginning in Fall 2018, CS majors will be able to take a two-course sequence that will take you from project ideation and selection to implementation and demonstration, to testing and a final “demo day”. Projects may range from new software systems, to contribute to existing open-source projects, to research projects. This will all be completed with a team of 3-5 members.
The first prize of $15K has been generously donated by CS alumnus, Sam Pasupalak, and the second prize of $10K has been provided by Microsoft. Prizes will be awarded as part of Demo Day at the end of CS 494.
CS 493 Offered for the first time in Fall 2018. You can select it during the Fall course selection period from May 23-28, 2018.Prerequisites: CS 246, CS 341, CS 350The plan is to offer it in every Fall term.CS 494 Offered for the first tim…
