GWPAC welcomes visiting faculty members for short or extended visits and sabbaticals, and postdoctoral scholars such as Humboldt Fellows. 

The Cal State Fullerton Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomy Center (GWPAC) was established to conduct research, education, and outreach in gravitational-wave astronomy, physics, and astrophysics. The center currently has three faculty members, one computing specialist, 8 master's students, and 15 undergraduates engaged in research, education and outreach related to gravitational-wave science.

GWPAC is facilitating collaboration among students, faculty members, visitors from around the world, and large external scientific collaborations. We also have strong local connections with gravitational-wave science at Caltech and with science education research at the Fullerton Catalyst Center.
