Announcement from BSU’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department

Retirement plans are creating some exciting space for new faculty in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Boise State.  In fact, we’re seeking to fill a variety of instructional roles, including multiple tenure-track, clinical, and adjunct appointments for spring 2022 and beyond.

We are interested in attracting two tenure-track Assistant Professors who care about teaching effectiveness and who are engaged in professional service. We’re also seeking an outstanding Clinical Assistant Professor with a commitment to excellence in teaching to support a new BS in Computer Systems Engineering launched in fall 2021.
