The Department of Electrical Engineering at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions with appointments to begin August 17, 2020. We seek outstanding candidates to complement and strengthen the existing focus areas of the department. We strongly encourage applicants who can demonstrate through their teaching, research, and service, their abilities to contribute to the diversity and excellence of our community, and who are commitment to innovative scholarship and working in a multidisciplinary environment.
