The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, invites applications for a Professor of the Practice position at any rank (i.e., Assistant, Associate, or Full). We especially encourage applicants with interest and experience in software engineering or systems software.

The ideal candidate will have commitment, passion, and excellence in teaching. Candidates should be eager to educate a broad and diverse group of students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and passionate about working to increase the participation and success of students from groups underrepresented in engineering and science. An ideal candidate should be enthusiastic about teaching courses at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced level in systems (e.g., operating systems, networking, databases, computer architecture, etc.) and/or software engineering (e.g., object-oriented design, software testing, etc.).

Professors of the Practice are regular rank faculty whose primary focus is the school’s educational mission. Reappointment and promotion are based on teaching excellence as well as complementary scholarship through technical or educational research, external research funding, peer-reviewed conference and journal publications, and/or involvement in engineering education at the national or international level. Such faculty typically teach two courses per semester with TA support.

Candidates must, by the time of appointment, possess an earned doctorate in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or an appropriate related discipline. Applications received by January 15, 2020 will receive full consideration. Applications must be submitted online via Academic Jobs Online:

We seek faculty members committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that fosters excellence in research and teaching and we welcome applications from women and members of minority groups as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions.
