Careers at Pratt
Your Place to Make a Difference
Every day, the people of the Pratt School of Engineering work toward tangible, positive impacts on local and global scales. Making an impact is important to us.
Whether you’re looking to contribute to the education of our students, join in the search for solutions to grand challenges, or provide world-class professional services to our diverse and supportive community, Duke Engineering is your place to make a difference.
A Place Where People Are the Focus
Within Duke Engineering, we’re building a supportive community that dares to aim higher and take well-considered risks.
The cornerstone of support is individual well-being. Our employees have access to a broad range of engaging programs to boost fitness and manage stress.
We seek a working environment that is balanced and healthy. As you’ll see in our job listings, hybrid and flexible schedules are available for many roles.
To promote work-life balance, Duke provides on-site lactation rooms, paid time off, paid parental and family leave, and more.
I followed Duke Engineering Instagram stories, and I really enjoyed them. I learned about all the exciting things happening and the growth within the school. I just think it’s a great place to work and I’m so happy to be here.
Celebrating Each Other’s Success
We insist on fun. The Pratt Community celebrates together (a lot). We have a lot to celebrate. Harrington Engineering Quad is our community’s outdoor living room. This green expanse hosts student, faculty and staff events (many with snacks!) most weekdays.
The perks don’t end there. As a Duke employee, you’ll have access to “PERQS”—exclusive shopping discounts with partner local and national businesses on entertainment, travel, gifts, home services and more.
