The Rockwood School of Marketing at Florida State University invites applications for a full-time, specialized (non-tenure track) faculty position beginning in August 2023. The primary responsibilities for this position include teaching courses in our undergraduate sales program and working closely with the FSU Sales Institute (http://fsusalesinstitute.com), with an emphasis on supporting our International Collegiate Sales Competition (ICSC). Ideal applicants will be student-focused, supportive, and looking to mentor the next generation of sales professionals. Specialized faculty tend to enjoy long careers at Florida State where they interact with a large student body that is passionate about the university and in a collegial, cohesive department.

The Rockwood School was founded in 2022 with a $10 million gift in honor of Persis E. Rockwood, a longtime member of the Florida State University marketing faculty. Persis Rockwood was a trailblazer, becoming the first woman to earn a doctorate in marketing from Stanford University and the first woman to attain the status of Full Professor in the FSU College of Business. The Rockwood gift provides $6 million in funding that specifically targets faculty, including funding for an eminent scholar chair, two emerging scholar professorships, and a generous discretionary fund.

The Rockwood School is home to a collegial, visible, and supportive faculty group with undergraduate programs in marketing and sales, and a doctoral program in marketing. Florida State University is a top- tier, research-intensive university that emphasizes excellence in both research and teaching. The University is located in Tallahassee – a vibrant community that offers exceptional and affordable living conditions, cultural activities, and an outstanding school system.

All applicants must have a terminal degree in business or closely related field from an accredited institution at the time of appointment. The Rockwood School values candidates from historically underrepresented groups and seeks talented faculty, students, and staff from diverse backgrounds.

Qualified candidates should submit a letter of application, current vitae, and two letters of reference to www.jobs.fsu.edu using position # #53780. Questions or clarifications should be directed to:
