This position is open to candidates with an array of related disciplinary backgrounds, including not only marketing but also others such as product development, user experience design, product/services design, etc. The College of Management is committed to diversity, inclusion, and student-centered pedagogy, and we seek candidates who share these commitments.

MIDE is one of four programs of study in Bucknell's AACSB accredited College of Management. Overall, the MIDE program incorporates strategic marketing, the design mindset and creative process, deep understanding of consumer-product/service relationships, prototyping based on consumer insights, and managing the marketing process.

The teaching load for this position is five course sections per academic year. We seek candidates who want to work in a collegial, interdisciplinary environment, collaborate with faculty ranging from the arts to engineering, develop innovative learning experiences, support our students through the mentoring/advising process, and serve the Bucknell University community.

A record of or potential for excellence in undergraduate teaching and research is required. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or terminal degree or be ABD in a relevant field at the time of appointment. If the successful candidate has a terminal degree and full-time teaching experience, up to three years of credit toward tenure could be granted.
