The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, invites applications for multiple Professor of the Practice (PoP) positions of any rank in the areas of Software, Computer Architecture, or Machine Learning.

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 to expand scientific boundaries in service to society 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 a breadth of courses in at least one of the following areas: Software (such as Software Engineering, Introductory Programming, Algorithms, Automata Theory, Networking, Operating Systems, or Databases), Computer Architecture (such as Computer Organization, or Digital Logic), and/or Machine Learning (such as Advanced Deep Learning Architecture, Transformers, Reinforcement Learning, or Python programming for Machine Learning applications).

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. PoP 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. The appropriate PoP rank will be determined based on a candidate's expertise and years of relevant experience. Review of applications will start immediately, and applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled. Applications should be submitted online via Academic Jobs Online: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22295.
