Assistant Professor - Marketing

Job description

Job FieldThe Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto invites applications for two full-time tenure-stream appointments in Marketing, one specializing in Behavioural Research and the other specializing in Empirical Quantitative Research. The appointments will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and will commence July 1, 2020, or shortly thereafter.

Applicants for these positions must have earned a Ph.D. in Marketing or a related discipline by the date of appointment or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching. In addition, applicants for each position must have a demonstrated strong theoretical and methodological background in the relevant area of specialization, as well as the demonstrated ability to apply this knowledge to important questions and issues in Marketing.

We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and strengthen our existing Marketing Area strengths in behavioral and quantitative marketing research. The Rotman School has a strong research oriented faculty that is supportive of serious scholarship and committed to the professional development of its faculty. The Marketing Area also has close ties with the departments of Psychology, Statistics and Economics. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level, and to establish an outstanding, competitive, externally-funded, research program leading to publications in top-ranked journals in Marketing and cognate disciplines. Examples of appropriate target journals in Marketing include the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Marketing Research, Marketing Science, Management Science, and the Journal of Marketing.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence as demonstrated by the submitted research statement and either a record of publications in top-ranked journals, such as those listed above, or a job market paper and other work in progress that meet high international standards. Other evidence of research excellence may include presentations at significant conferences or invited seminars, and research awards and accolades. Strong letters of recommendation from referees of high standing are also required.

The successful candidate will also have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level and to graduate student training and supervision. A commitment to excellence in teaching will be demonstrated through the statement of teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, and evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities (such as performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference posters or presentations), as well as strong letters of reference, and strong performance during the on-campus presentation for short-listed candidates.

The University of Toronto is Canada's largest university and has an international research reputation. The Rotman School operates an undergraduate Commerce program, a Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting, a full-time, part-time and executive MBA program, a Master of Finance, a Master of Financial Risk Management, and a Ph.D. program. The School is situated in the heart of Canada’s corporate and financial centre, and the world’s most diverse city.
