The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and the Department of

Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) of the Duke University’s Pratt School of

Engineering invite applications for a tenure‐track faculty position in robotics to begin

September 2014. An applicant whose work relates to robotics in areas such as, but not limited

to, autonomous robotics, multi‐agent systems, robot motion planning, sensor‐based navigation,

medical and surgical robotics, rehabilitative robotics, exoskeleton and prosthetic systems, and

their applications will be well‐suited for this position. A Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering

or Mechanical Engineering (or a closely related field) is required at the time of employment.

Whereas the position is available at the Assistant Professor level, truly exceptional candidates

may be suitable to be hired at the Associate or Full Professor level.


The successful candidate is expected to carry out high quality scholarly research and

collaborate with other faculty. He or she should have a clear plan to establish a vibrant

research program, secure external research funding, and actively participate in teaching at both

the graduate and undergraduate levels. Full consideration will be given to applications received

by January 1, 2014, but the applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.

Applicants should electronically submit: (1) cover letter ( including email, address, and phone

number), (2) complete curriculum vitae, (3) two‐page statement of achievements in teaching

and research, and (4) names, addresses, e‐mail addresses, and telephone numbers of five

references to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3265


The Pratt School of Engineering is committed to fostering a diverse educational environment

and encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups. Duke University is an

Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. It is committed to recruiting, hiring, and

promoting qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.
