The IEEE Microwave Theory and Technology Society (MTT-S) invites applicants for the position of Editor-in-Chief (EiC) for the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Technology Letters (MWTL) for a three–year term starting on January 1, 2025.

The EiC organizes the peer review of the received manuscripts, provides constructive feedback to the authors, makes acceptance decisions, and assembles each issue of the periodical for transmission to IEEE Publications. The EiC assembles a panel of Track and Associate Editors covering different subject areas, and an editorial assistant to help carry out the editorial work.
