The Duke School of Engineering (Pratt) at Duke University invites applications for a Non-Regular Rank Executive in Residence position in the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program.

Successful candidates will be responsible for the following:

  1. Teaching load: 4 sections of MEM 540 management – 2 Fall, 2 Spring
  2. Service Component: Partner with MEM’s Executive director in advancing industry partnerships to ensure that students are gaining experience and learning skills that are current with industry needs.  This role has the following elements:
    • Development of a “target list” of companies that we want to focus our outreach to.  Factors that should be considered include history of recruiting MEM students, student desire to work in these companies, alignment with MEM’s elective track, geographic location in RTP, etc.
    • Conduct industry outreach to companies in “target list”.  The goal of the outreach is to:

i.                 Increase company’s awareness of MEM program

ii.                Create opportunities for companies to sponsor employees as students in our program

iii.              Sourcing of industry projects for potential execution within MEM elective courses

iv.              Create opportunities for students to be hired by said companies

    • Partner with other members of MEM Leadership team to track & ensure leads from outreach are turning into action

Ideal candidates should have relevant experience and a track record of helping individuals, particularly in science & technology fields learn concepts and practice skills that will enable them to transition from being an individual contributor to managing and leading others as a business professional.  The candidate should demonstrate competence in areas such as understanding of management and leadership; developing awareness of own management and leadership styles; building and practicing competencies essential for team success; and helping individuals become ethical leaders above reproach. They will also have a PhD in engineering, psychology, or a related field (or commensurate industry leadership experience plus a master’s degree). Prior teaching experience in a university setting is preferred but not required.  Teaching/course development experience is strongly preferred. This position is expected to be full time, but other levels of commitment may be considered.

We seek a faculty member who is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that fosters excellence in teaching.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, teaching statement (1 page), and a list of the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail contacts of three references.
