The University of Florida, Warrington College of Business is seeking to fill an open Clinical Professor of Marketing faculty position with a start date of Fall 2022.

The position is open at multiple levels including Full Professor, Assistant Professor, or Associate Professor. The level will be based on experience, demonstrated teaching ability, and contributions to the field of Marketing.

As such, practical commercial experience in Marketing is desired for the position. A key requirement of this position is that the applicant possess a terminal degree (PhD or Doctor of Business Administration) or be expected to complete their terminal degree prior to Fall 2022 in order to be considered for this position.
Applicants for this position will be asked to teach courses at the graduate, undergraduate, and Continuing Education levels.

In order to teach the AI/ML and Business Analytics courses, applicants should be able to program and teach courses utilizing either Python or R. While experience with other analytics programs is helpful, the Warrington College of Business Marketing Department’s focus on applied AI for business is primarily based on these two analytics software tools.
Candidates must have a Doctoral degree in business or related field by August 2022. The new hire will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in marketing analytics. Preference will be given to candidates who have significant industry experience and/or an established program of scholarly research that demonstrates an understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning applications that apply to marketing tasks and functions.Application Instructions:
