The Persis E. Rockwood School of Marketing at Florida State University invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the assistant or advanced assistant professor level. The ideal candidates will conduct rigorous and relevant research, using any methodology and theoretical lens, that has implications for marketing strategy and/or consumer-based strategy. The positions will be filled pending final budget approval from the University Provost. The expected start date is August 2024.

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 highly productive faculty group with expertise in marketing strategy, organizational frontline research, consumer-based strategy, and public policy.

Tenure-track faculty are provided with favorable teaching loads, minimal internal service commitments, and generous

research and travel support, with the clear expectation of publishing in top academic outlets.

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.

Initial screening of applicants will begin in early August. First interviews will be conducted via Zoom, with a smaller pool being invited to visit campus once the initial round is completed. Applicants must have a doctorate in marketing or a 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 three letters of reference to www.jobs.fsu.edu using position #55556. Questions or clarifications should be directed to:
