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.

The Coastal Zone Engineering and Management Cluster is part of an exciting new initiative, undertaken as part of SUNY 2020, to hire 100 faculty members over the next five years to expand teaching and research in emerging fields of study that cut across traditional boundaries of academic disciplines. These interdisciplinary faculty cluster hires are aimed at addressing society's most vexing challenges that require a broad understanding of ocean processes and human interaction with the sea. Special emphasis would be directed towards the important societal issues of the region, such as transportation, offshore renewable energy, water quality, and our ability to monitor and simulate the ocean�s properties and functioning as well as the consequential societal choices. 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.
