Job Description

The College of Business Administration (COBA) at Texas A&M University-Central Texas welcomes highly qualified applicants to fill an immediate need for an Assistant or Visiting Assistant Professor of Marketing position starting in Fall 2021. The Assistant Professor position would be tenure-track. The visiting position would be a fixed-term, nine-month position with possible renewal and optional limited summer teaching opportunities. Application reviews will begin in April 2021. We are looking for a dynamic individual who is an excellent instructor, a capable and active researcher, and who has experience with program development / growth.

Established as an independent member of the Texas A&M University System in 2009, A&M-Central Texas is a friendly and dynamic regional teaching institution that prides itself on excellence in instruction, but also embraces a growing emphasis on research. A&M-Central Texas is truly unique in that it is an upper- and masters-level institution, offering only junior- and senior-level coursework needed to successfully complete baccalaureate degrees, and all coursework leading to the completion of master’s degrees. As such, A&M-Central Texas maintains active partnerships with the major community colleges within the Austin and Central Texas region, as well with Fort Hood, a premier outpost of the U.S. Army and one of the largest military installations in the world. Our diverse student demographic includes a significant proportion of first-generation college students, non-traditional learners, and military-affiliated personnel.

COBA is actively pursuing AACSB accreditation. Our initial self-evaluation report was accepted in April of 2019, and our second progress report was submitted in February of 2021. We are eager to have dynamic and collegial new faculty members partner with us in these and other strategic efforts within the College. This is an exciting time of rapid change within the College that affords new faculty members many opportunities to make an immediate, significant, and lasting impact.

A&M-Central Texas is located on the southern edge of Killeen, TX, a city of approximately 150,000 located about halfway between Austin and Waco—about 60 miles either way. Our faculty members enjoy a wide variety of living options by virtue of the diversity in the area—from quiet and rural to bustling and cosmopolitan. It is an easy drive to great art, food, shopping, and night life as well as to hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping for those who prefer the outdoors. Central Texas is also a great place to start and raise a family, and features light traffic and an affordable cost of living. The major metropolitan areas of Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antonio are all within a 3-hour radius of Killeen.


The candidate will be expected to provide excellent and current instruction in three to four courses per term at the undergraduate and graduate level, in a variety of course delivery formats (face-to-face, online, hyflex, or hybrid). This position may require teaching in the following areas: principles of marketing, consumer behavior, promotional strategy, digital and Internet marketing, services marketing, marketing research, and marketing strategy.

The candidate is expected to show research growth and progress. Coming into this position, the candidate will be expected to participate in revising the marketing program and developing new curriculum. Other responsibilities include active program recruiting for the BBA Marketing major (which may include student mentorship and/or advising), working with other faculty on program assessment and continuous improvement, attending departmental, college, and university meetings/functions, and performing other related duties as assigned.

Minimum Qualifications:

To be eligible to apply for this position, candidates should:

  • Have completed a PhD or DBA in marketing by the start date for this position
  • Be eligible for the AACSB “scholarly academic” faculty classification
  • Be able to provide quality instruction in the areas and modalities mentioned above
  • Have experience and familiarity with cutting-edge marketing skills such as marketing analytics, social media marketing, SEO, social network analytics, web analytics, etc.

Preferred Qualifications:

The ideal candidate for this position would also possess:

  • A PhD or DBA in Marketing from an AACSB-accredited institution
  • Industry experience in the field of marketing
  • An established record of excellent collegiate teaching experience, including online
  • An established or emerging stream of scholarship in the marketing discipline
  • A proven track record of program development and successful student recruiting and student organization.

Salary: Negotiable depending on qualifications

This position is identified as a Campus Security Authority (CSA).

Working knowledge of and completion of annual training on the Jeanne Clery Act is required.

All positions are security-sensitive. Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent upon the institution’s verification of credentials and/or other information required by the institution’s procedures, including the completion of the criminal history check.
