FSL Recruiting (ongoing through 2017-2019)
I am looking to recruit a few new PhD and MS students to join my research
group. Students can be existing PhD students at Stony Brook (especially new
PhD students in their first year, but also MS, BS/MS, UG, and Honors
students) or outside students who would apply to the PhD program at Stony
Brook. We conduct systems research with a focus on storage. Graduates of
FSL have a great placement record in industry R&D jobs, doctoral
programs, and research labs. See
the FSL Home Page for such
Successful applicants will typically have the following:
If you are interested and you are an existing student at Stony Brook, then
please leave a PRINTED copy of your resume, your undergrad transcripts, and
your Stony Brook transcripts (or other grad transcripts, if any) in my
mailbox and I'll review them. If you have any other useful documents
(papers, project details, source code examples, etc.), you can leave them in
my mailbox as well. If you're an external student considering applying to
the PhD program, then feel free to contact me for further instructions.
- Good under/graduate grades (e.g., First Class (FC), First Class with
Distinction (FCD), or equivalent).
- Know C/C++ well (script programming a plus).
- Have used Linux or other Unix systems.
- Optional: have some industry experience, preferably in the systems field.
- Optional: have done research and/or published papers.
If you haven't already, I strongly suggest you take CSE-506 (OS) and CSE-548
(Alg). Taking those two courses and doing well in them is critical for
anyone interested in working in the systems field.
Qualified students who join the lab will receive financial support in the
form of a Research Assistanship (RA) and an in-state tuition waver, as well
as access to lots of equipment and labs in FSL and CEWIT/AERTC.
