The University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School seeks an outstanding candidate for a permanent, full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Marketing based at Saïd Business School, Park End Street, Oxford. The post will be held in association with a non-tutorial fellowship at Kellogg College. 

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on the 28th of February 2024. 

The School welcomes applications from early career candidates (i.e., scholars who have completed or will very soon complete their PhD), postdoctoral researchers (i.e., scholars who are currently in a postdoc position in a business school), and faculty who are already established in a business school as a tenure-track faculty member.

Applicants should be scholars with a focus on marketing-related topics whose research is both scientifically rigorous and managerially relevant. Applicants will have a marketing background (i.e., a PhD in marketing) or a background in a related discipline where their research focuses on marketing issues (e.g., information systems, computer science, machine learning, computational social science, econometrics, statistics). The methodological focus is quantitative (empirical modelling). Applicants with a predominant focus on other major methodologies used in marketing (qualitative and experimental) are unlikely to be considered. Additionally, the School strongly prefers applicants whose current and future research agendas address matters of clear practical relevance and importance to business stakeholders. 

In terms of publishing, the School expects its faculty members to publish in the very best journals in business, which are considered to be those on the Financial Times academic journals list (specifically the 48 peer-reviewed academic journals on the list, excluding the two practitioner-focused publications, Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review). In marketing, the key journals the School values most are (in alphabetical order): Journal of the Academy of Marketing ScienceJournal of Consumer PsychologyJournal of Consumer ResearchJournal of MarketingJournal of Marketing Research, and Marketing Science (with the latter four – JCR, JM, JMR, MkSci – considered as the very top journals in this discipline). It is essential that applicants are already able to show a track record of publishing in these journals and be able to clearly demonstrate potential to publish in these journals in the future. 

Faculty are also expected to provide excellent and innovative teaching across the educational programmes run by the School. The Marketing group in the School teaches mainly in the MBA and EMBA programmes, with some additional teaching in the undergraduate programme as well as in non-degree executive education programmes. The Marketing group is also heavily involved in the part-time postgraduate Executive Diploma in AI for Business. The group’s teaching includes courses in core marketing, digital marketing, marketing analytics, AI for marketing, and consumer behaviour, and there are plans to widen the group’s offering in line with faculty interests and market needs.
