Job Description

Assistant Professor of Marketing

Albion CollegeAlbion, Michigan, United States

Description

The Department of Economics and Management seeks an excellent teacher to fill a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Marketing beginning in August 2021.  Albion is dedicated to the highest quality in undergraduate education lead by our teacher-scholar faculty.  Albion is also committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion as core institutional values. The teacher-scholar model creates a vibrant community that cherishes faculty and student relationships and faculty scholarly contributions.  Faculty at Albion College carry a 2/3 teaching load in the first year. In the second year, they carry the regular 3/3 load. In the fourth year, following successful evaluation, faculty are afforded an additional release each semester from teaching for scholarship and carry a 2/2 teaching load in preparation for submitting their application for tenure in the fifth year.

A successful Assistant Professor of Marketing will be prepared to teach marketing principles, consumer behavior, marketing research, marketing strategy, and one or more electives in marketing, data analytics, or management.  Preference will be given to a generalist able to teach a variety of undergraduate courses to a diverse student body.  In addition to teaching marketing courses within the department and advising students, Albion faculty teach courses related to focus areas of the Albion core curriculum including environmental, race/ethnicity, gender, or global issues (e.g., international marketing); first-year seminars; and/or interdisciplinary honors course. Advising and mentoring students is also an important responsibility.  Applicants must provide evidence of effective teaching and potential for ongoing scholarship.  

We seek candidates who are passionate about the liberal arts.  The Albion faculty teacher-scholar model is ideal for active scholars who care deeply about the craft of teaching in small classes, collaborating with students, and building a successful scholarly career.  Albion faculty members mentor undergraduate research experiences, secure funding to support their own scholarly efforts, and travel to professional conferences.  

Applicants should submit a cover letter, current CV, teaching evaluations, a research paper, at least three letters of reference, and a copy of graduate transcript through Interfolio: https://apply.interfolio.com/76366.  First priority will be given to applications that are complete by July 6, 2020, but additional applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Video conference interviews will take place between August 3 and August 21, 2020.  Depending on the Covid-19 situation, finalists will be invited for either in-person campus visits or virtual campus visits in September or October 2020.
