The Haslam College of Business seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Marketing at the Assistant or Advanced Assistant Professor level. The chosen candidate will conduct state-of-the art research, teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in marketing (new tenure track hires teach three courses per year), and perform service duties as needed. The ideal candidate will conduct research with implications for marketing managers, independent of methodological or theoretical approach. The position start date is August 1, 2023.

The Marketing Department in the Haslam College of Business includes 19 full-time faculty members (13 tenure track and 6 non-tenure track), with diverse areas of specialization. The department’s tenure track faculty have a demonstrated record of success publishing in the field’s premier journals and are highly active and visible in the discipline (e.g., as journal editors, award-winning reviewers, and special interest group leaders). The department is home to a vibrant doctoral program, a newly established Master of Science in Marketing program, and a multi-track undergraduate program that serves students with interests in digital marketing, professional selling, and customer and brand strategy. 


Applicants must hold a PhD (or must earn a PhD prior to the position start date) in marketing or a directly related field, with a demonstrated ability to conduct high-quality research publishable in the discipline’s premier journals. In addition, applicants must have the ability to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
