Duke University’s Master of Engineering in Financial Technology (FinTech) program has become one of the strongest programs of its kind globally. This program attracts some of the best and brightest students from universities and industry around the world. To support the continued success of this program, the Pratt School of Engineering invite applications for an Executive in Residence position.

Successful candidates will be expected to:

· Teach 4 courses each year for Pratt Master’s Programs, primarily in FinTech

· Collaborate across program, department and school boundaries

· Connect and engage with industry partners regarding capstone projects, career opportunities, seminars, and various other projects (e.g. intercollegiate competitions).

· Support the academic, research, operational, and co-curricular activities of the Master of Engineering in FinTech programs through service expectations.

This role is focused on master’s degree education for the Master of Engineering in Financial Technology. In particular, we are looking for individuals able to teach classes that will leverage advanced work in Artificial Intelligence, specifically Machine Learning as it applies directly to financial applications and classes to instruct students in the proper techniques to engineer data, including manipulation to account for anomalies and visualization. We are open to other areas of expertise that expand and enhance our FinTech curriculum.

In addition to teaching, we seek an individual that will help to establish a project for digital assets research as part of the Master of Engineering in Financial Technology working with the Director of the FinTech graduate program. This role will lead to the development and implementation of research into various aspects of cryptocurrency and digital assets including asset pricing methodologies, risk and volatility measures, liquidity, and liquidity centers. Research output is expected to be both white papers and reports for a broad audience as well as peer-reviewed journal articles. This role may lead to a Masters-level seminar in which students analyze and generate broadly accessible research reports on digital issues.

Ideal candidates will have deep experience in either an academic or corporate setting, in either case demonstrated engagement with industry is important. Familiarity with finance, FinTech product design, trading, and risk management from a programming perspective is desirable. They would also have a PhD or commensurate industry experience/expertise in a related discipline and ideally have prior teaching/training and course development experience. This position is expected to be full-time.

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, cover letter, and a list of the names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail contacts of three references. Applications must be submitted electronically through academicjobsonline.org.
