Welcome to an exciting opportunity to join the Marketing Department at Boise State University as the Dykman Distinguished Professor of Professional Sales. We are seeking a faculty member at the Associate or Full Professor level who has the vision and experience to provide intellectual and pedagogical leadership of a new professional sales program.  The academic program will include a major, minor, and certificate offerings.  This person will work with the Director of Professional Sales and marketing faculty to contribute to the development of a vibrant set of curricular and co-curricular sales learning opportunities and industry engagements.  Together, they will design and deliver one of the top professional sales programs in the Western United States.  The tentative start date is August 2025, but a start date as early as August 2024 can be negotiated.
