Partnering with Educators
We depend on educators to help us identify the students who would benefit from our programs and resources, and in return we provide resources, support, and advice for educators working with academically talented students.
We hire year-round for great instructors, administrative staff, and residential counselors. Working at Duke TIP is one of the most rewarding work experiences you will ever have—explore your opportunities now.
