Professor of the Practice Position
Joint Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Duke University in Durham, NC jointly invite applications and nominations for a Professor of the Practice (PoP) position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full level. We are seeking an innovative educator with teaching and research experience at the intersection of electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering. This non-tenure-track, regular-rank position will serve as a primary instructor of the introductory circuits and systems course taken by students majoring in ECE or BME. The candidate will also develop and teach advanced undergraduate elective and design courses of interest to ECE and BME majors. PoP positions emphasize 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.
Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in electrical, computer, or biomedical engineering, and have a demonstrated record of teaching excellence. Candidates with industry experience are encouraged to apply.
Applications received by September 1 will be guaranteed consideration.
Duke University is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. It welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions.
