All applications should be submitted using the online application process. The first step in the process is to visit the Duke Careers website and choose from one of the two applicant gateways or links depending on whether you are an external candidate, or a current Duke employee. Once you have selected the appropriate gateway, you will want to create a new account to submit your application to Duke University and Health System.
External Candidates will "Create a New Account" using their email address and setting up a password. You will be guided through the application process and be able to search and apply for open positions. Internal Candidates may also access the internal gateway via the Duke@Work self-service website under the Candidate Selection tab using their Duke NetID and password.
If you need assistance with completing the online application, please contact the Duke Human Resource Information Center at 919-684-5600.
You will receive an email confirmation once you have completed the initial online application process. To ensure that the information submitted was completed accurately, you are encouraged to log back in to your account and review your information. You will also receive an email confirmation after successfully applying for a specific position.
You will be required to upload your resume as part of the online application process. As a result, we recommend that you contact your local library or any other establishment with public computers to confirm that you can upload your resume from a flash drive or other device. Once you have created your account and uploaded your resume, you may visit the Duke Human Resources Information Center, located at 705 Broad Street, to search and apply for jobs. For security reasons, the public computers at the 705 Broad Street location are locked from uploading documents.
Searching and Applying for Open Positions
You will receive an email confirmation when you have successfully applied to an open position. Your application and qualifications will be reviewed by a recruiter for the minimum qualifications and the department's preferred skills and experience for the position. The hiring manager will review applications from the forwarded candidates and select those they are interested in contacting for an interview. The hiring manager will contact an applicant directly if they are interested in arranging an interview. Following the interviews, the hiring manager will select the most suitable candidate for the position.
Faculty positions are handled by the individual schools and departments seeking candidates for those positions. If you are interested in a faculty position, please visit the list of schools on the Duke website at www.duke.edu and search for the specific school and department that is of interest to you to see if there are any available positions that may fit your qualifications and interests.
If a position is no longer on the Duke Job website, the position may have been closed (an applicant hired) or cancelled (position closed without a hire). You can also review your Job Application Status (see information below regarding this system feature) which will show when a position for which you have applied has been closed or cancelled.
You can monitor the status of your application online under the Job Applications feature. If your resume is forwarded to a hiring department for consideration, you will receive an email and your status will be updated. The hiring department reviews the applications and if the hiring department is interested in speaking with you regarding the position, they will contact you directly. We regret that due to the volume of applicants Duke receives, we are unable to respond to each candidate individually regarding the status of their application.
