|The Department of Computer Science at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, invites applications and nominations for a Professor of the Practice position starting in July 2017. The appointment will be made at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of the Practice rank depending on the candidate's experience. Duke has a long history of supporting faculty with practice-of titles who are educators, practitioners, and scholars, and the Computer Science department has set high standards in providing a teaching and work environment in which practice-of faculty thrive. The ideal candidate will have a strong commitment to and demonstrated excellence in teaching. Successful candidates at the Associate and Full Professor of the Practice level will show examples of academic, scholarly, and educational success outside the classroom that have resulted in, or have the potential to result in, significant advancements in computer science and engineering education. Successful candidates must show commitment to educating a broad and diverse group of students and in working to increase the participation and success of students from groups underrepresented in computer science. The term of an initial appointment depends on the rank, but is typically four years for a junior position. Reappointment and promotion are governed by departmental and university bylaws and guidelines that encourage faculty to be innovative, to succeed locally and nationally, and to develop new courses and curricula that mesh with ongoing and new initiatives. Practice-of faculty typically teach two courses per semester with graduate and undergraduate TA support. We especially encourage faculty with interest and experience in mobile computing to apply. |
A Ph.D. in computer science or related area, or appropriate professional experience is required. To guarantee full consideration, applications and letters of reference should be received by January 9, 2017.
