The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, invites applications for an Assistant Professor of the Practice position in the areas of algorithms and linear algebra. This position will be a 50%/50% joint appointment with the Math Department.

The ideal candidate will have commitment, passion, and excellence in teaching in a collegial, collaborative community. 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 computer engineering and science. An ideal candidate would be enthusiastic about teaching courses in automata theory, algorithms, and linear algebra that connect rigorous theory (i.e., proofs) to practice (i.e., implementation in working code). Accordingly, candidates should have strong and demonstrated backgrounds in mathematics, algorithms, automata theory, and implementation of algorithms in practical programming languages (such as Python or C++).

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 teaching assistant support.

Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, or an appropriate related discipline. Applications received by January 19, 2022 will receive full consideration. Applications should be submitted online via Academic Jobs Online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/20780

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