Job Details

The Department of Engineering Science within the School of Science & Technology (SST) at Sonoma State University (SSU) is seeking a highly motivated teacher/scholar at the Assistant Professor level to start in August 2017. The Department of Engineering Science offers a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering with specializations in electronics and communications and a master's degree with specializations in communications and photonics, and computer hardware and software systems. The successful candidate will teach electrical engineering courses and laboratories at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

 In addition to teaching face-to-face courses, the successful candidate is expected to be actively involved in external/internal grant writing and building collaborative research projects with the local industry. The Department takes pride in teaching excellence and hands-on student-centered research and projects. We are committed to expanding and diversifying participation for groups traditionally underrepresented in electrical engineering, and we strongly encourage faculty candidates with similar goals and relevant experience to apply.

To be recommended for appointment, candidates must have the following:

-        A Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or a closely related field on or before the start date.

-        Demonstrated excellence in face-to-face classroom teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels;

-        Ability and interest to teach a wide range of courses related to Electrical Engineering;

-        Demonstrated ability to develop new and improve existing hands-on real-world laboratory experiments for undergraduate and graduate students;

-        Demonstrated involvement in scholarly research and seeking external grants;

To be recommended for tenure, candidates must demonstrate satisfactory performance in four areas:  teaching effectiveness; research and scholarship; University service; and public community service.  Although tenure may be granted at any time, contract provisions specify that "the normal period of probation shall be a total of six (6) years of full-time probationary service and credited service, if any.  Any deviation from the normal six (6) year probationary period shall be the decision of the President following his/her consideration of recommendations from the department or equivalent unit and appropriate administrator(s).” Tenure is required for promotion above the level of Associate Professor.
