Candidates should have a PhD in Marketing or a related area. We are interested in soon-to-be PhD graduates as well as recent PhD graduates (currently serving at the Assistant professor rank). Candidates should have outstanding research skills and a passion for teaching. For the advanced candidates, we will look for evidence of significant scholarship in the form of publications or potential thereof, in top-tier or leading peer-reviewed scholarly journals.
