This postdoctoral position funded by the National Science Foundation is available immediately for highly motivated individuals to join Dr. Etezad’s research group. The project is focused on developing a novel braille tactile display for visually impaired individuals to improve the current limitations on cost, speed, ease of reading, and accuracy of such tactile displays.

Chapman University is a nationally ranked institution offering traditional undergraduate and graduate programs in the heart of Orange County, one of Southern California’s most diverse and vibrant regions. The university holds R2 status in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, a distinction held by just 10 percent of all U.S. universities. Our faculty include academic leaders who excel in research, scholarship, and world-class teaching in our 11 schools and colleges, including Fowler School of Engineering. Dedicated to forward-looking, personalized education, we create an environment for unlimited achievement by both our students and faculty.

Opened in the fall of 2019, the Dale E. and Sarah Ann Fowler School of Engineering offers undergraduate degree programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, and Software Engineering. Fowler Engineering is committed to contributing solutions to global challenges, and to building truly inclusive and equitable faculty, staff, and student experiences. A key component of that mission is the recruitment and support of faculty, researchers, staff, and students from the broadest possible set of backgrounds and experiences. Members of the school are likewise expected to contribute substantially toward our goals of equity and inclusion through teaching, research, learning, and service. The newly-opened Swenson Family Hall of Engineering provides state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research that allow for experiences that are truly without boundaries.
