Position Announcement

The Department of Marketing in the Lundquist College of Business seeks to fill three tenure-track faculty positions. Structurally, two positions are intended for the assistant professor level and one position at an advanced level (associate or full professor). 

The University of Oregon is supporting the Department of Marketing’s initiative to hire a cluster of scholars with aligned research and teaching interests around the theme of “Marketing for a Better World.” The marketing discipline is increasingly shifting toward uncovering new ways marketing can address grand challenges and be used for good, as represented by recent special issues in premier marketing journals: 

“Marketing has the power to improve lives, sustain livelihoods, strengthen societies, and benefit the world at large.” — Journal of Marketing’s 2021 “Better Marketing for a Better World” Special Issue. 

“The grand challenges of climate change, widening inequalities with respect to gender, race, and wealth, alongside current healthcare, social, and economic crises are compelling organizations to reimagine their marketing strategy to make a meaningful contribution for a better world.” — Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science’s announcement of its upcoming “Reimagining Marketing Strategy: Driving the Debate on Grand Challenges” Special Issue. 

By adding three new faculty with scholarship, values, and interests aligned to these topics and to the Department of Marketing’s existing faculty, the department hopes to grow a mutually supportive community of scholars with overlapping values and sense of purpose so that the department can better advance impactful research and teaching. Ideally, the cluster hire will help the department cover the full scope of marketing scholarship from macro‐level to micro‐level, and includes the areas of modeling, strategy and consumer behavior. This cluster hire aligns with the University of Oregon Provost’s Strategic Initiative on Environment (‐criteria) and Sport & Wellness (‐criteria).

Eugene often appears on lists of the most livable communities in the country. It enjoys the cultural amenities of a larger city – hosting concerts that span the musical spectrum, a world-famous Bach Festival, and many other festivals and celebrations – and the accessible real estate, lack of traffic, and relaxed lifestyle of a small city. Recreational possibilities abound, ranging from hiking or mountain-biking picturesque trails to playing nationally ranked golf courses to running the same paths on which Olympic athletes train. (Known as Tracktown USA, Eugene hosts the US Olympic Track & Field trials, as well as numerous other sporting events tied to the Pac-12 athletic conference.) Eugene lies just 60 miles from ski resorts in the mountains to the east and 60 miles from the scenic Oregon coast to the west. In the heart of Oregon wine country, Eugene also enjoys a nationally recognized food scene.
