Dear robotics community,

The Duke Robotics group has an opening for a teaching faculty position to help grow our offerings in robotics. We are looking for people who are passionate about education and would value the opportunity to influence bright, enthusiastic future engineers and scientists at Duke.

Professors of the Practice (POPs) are evaluated primarily on teaching, but they are full voting faculty members, and have enormous influence over the curriculum at both undergraduate and graduate levels.  Although initial 3 year appointments are non-tenured, POP appointments may be renewed, and POPs who have demonstrated a track record of excellence in teaching may be promoted to tenured POP positions.

Full text of the job announcement can be found below.

The Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science (MEMS) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of the Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering invites applications for a Professor of the Practice in the area of robotics to begin August 2017. The candidate will work closely with the newly established Duke Robotics program to both teach core graduate robotics classes, but also manage the new masters programs in Robotics. This is a non-tenure track position, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field is required. The successful candidate should have approximately five years of practical experience in a professional position or positions related to robotics. The appointment will be for three years with the rank to be determined. The successful candidate is expected to teach classes that relate to intelligent robotics, robotics systems & integration, and/or mobility and manipulation. Additional responsibilities include supervising the Duke robotics masters programs, serving on Ph.D. dissertation committees and supervising capstone projects, as well as advising and mentoring both current and prospective students. We seek faculty members committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that fosters excellence in teaching and research. Full consideration will be given to applications received by December 15, 2016, but applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
