The Department of Marketing at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is seeking candidates for a quantitative post-doctoral fellowship. The department of marketing has strong research programs in many substantive marketing areas such as advertising, pricing, demand estimation, and channel and incentive design, and in methodological areas such as Bayesian inference, machine learning and AI, causal inference, and structural econometrics.

The fellowship will be supported by Mars, Inc., who will provide the fellow with rich and unique data sets which will allow the fellow to explore problems related to the digitization of retail purchases and marketing in an omni-channel environment, with potential focus on social networks, multi-media consumption, purchase timing, and advertising effectiveness.


Students from data-oriented disciplines such as marketing, information systems, statistics, operations research, computer science, engineering, data science and economics are encouraged to apply. Applicants are expected to show outstanding capacity for research as well as excellent communication skills. The fellow will be supervised by Professors Bradlow and Berman but will also be provided with ample opportunities to work with faculty from across Wharton and the University of Pennsylvania. This research fellowship provides full funding without any teaching requirements at a competitive salary for 2-3 years, beginning in January 2023 (or sooner if applicable). Applications should be submitted by September 15, 2022. After that date applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. (expected completion by December 31, 2022 is acceptable) from an accredited institution. Interested candidates should submit the following materials by September 15, 2022:

  • Cover Letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
