Position description

The Department of Marketing at Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business invites applications for three tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level with the starting date of August 2023. Exceptional candidates at the Associate level may also be considered. Duties include research, teaching and service to the institution.

Qualifications and assets

Candidates must have completed their PhD or be near completion at the start date of the appointment. The main criteria for selection are scholarly and teaching excellence. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high-quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department values diversity among its faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and members of underrepresented groups. The language of instruction at Concordia is English, but a working knowledge of French is an asset. 

For the first position (20_T_MARK_M), the department will be considering candidates trained in quantitative research methods, such as empirical and/or analytical modeling techniques. They must demonstrate their ability to contribute to the field of marketing and the capacity to teach marketing courses. Candidates who wish to be considered for the position based on these considerations must indicate that they are applying for position code 20_T_MARK_M in their cover letter.

For the second and third positions (21_T_MARK_O), the department will be considering candidates trained in experimental, qualitative, and/or survey research methods. They must demonstrate their ability to contribute to the field of marketing and the capacity to teach marketing courses. Candidates who wish to be considered for the position based on these conditions must indicate that they are applying for position code 21_T_MARK_O in their cover letter.

How to apply

Applications must be submitted electronically to Dr. Darlene Walsh, Chair, Department of Marketing, John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, at by July 22, 2022. Only short-listed candidates will be notified. The appointment is expected to commence in August 2023.

Applications should consist of:

  • a cover letter that should include (but is not limited to):
    • the position code that the candidate wants to be considered for (20_T_MARK_M or/and 21_T_MARK_O); candidates who wish to be considered for both position codes should indicate this clearly in their cover letter

    • a brief statement of inclusion (as requested in the paragraph below)

  • recent teaching evaluations or other evidence of teaching effectiveness
  • sample(s) of research papers

Concordia University is strongly committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, and recognizes the importance of inclusion in achieving excellence in teaching and research. As part of this commitment to providing our students with the dynamic, innovative, and inclusive educational environment of a Next-Generation university, we require all applicants to articulate in their cover letter how their background, as well as lived and professional experiences and expertise have prepared them to teach in ways that are relevant for a diverse, multicultural contemporary Canadian society. These ongoing or anticipated examples can include but are not limited to:

  • teaching about underrepresented populations
  • mentoring students from underrepresented backgrounds
  • committee work
  • offering or organizing educational programming
  • participation in training and workshops

All applicants will receive an email invitation to complete a short equity survey.
