The Department of Computer Science at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, invites applications and nominations for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at all ranks, in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational economics. We are particularly but not exclusively interested in candidates who apply their strong theoretical, algorithmic, and computational skills to areas of societal interest.
Candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree in computer science or a related field. A successful candidate must have a solid disciplinary foundation and demonstrate the promise of outstanding scholarship in every regard, including research and teaching. A successful candidate at the full professor level is expected to take a significant departmental and university leadership role in strengthening the important strategic area of artificial intelligence.
Applicants should submit their materials (cover letter, curriculum vita, research statement, teaching statement, contacts for at least three references) electronically through AcademicJobsOnline (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19916), and solicit letters of reference. For full consideration, applications and references should be received by December 15, 2021.
Computing is a focus area of Duke Science and Technology (DST), a signature initiative at Duke supported by significant philanthropic investment that involves strategic recruitment of exceptional faculty. Candidates in the field of computing who applied to the DST search will be automatically considered by our departmental search committees.
Duke is committed to further enhancing the diversity of its faculty and students. We seek faculty members who are also committed to building a diverse and inclusive community, which fosters excellence in research and teaching. We strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented minorities in computing.

All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.
