ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN MARKETING, Boston University Questrom School of Business 

Job Description

The Questrom School of Business at Boston University anticipates an opening for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Marketing with an emphasis on quantitative marketing. Pending Provost budgetary approval, the anticipated start date for this faculty position is July 1, 2020.   

The Marketing Department at the Questrom School of Business is building a strong group of faculty with expertise in all aspects of marketing. Multiple hires represent a strategic focus for the School and are intended to fuel cross-departmental and cross-university research initiatives in analytics and data science, and support the Fall 2019 launch of our Master of Science in Business Analytics.

We seek outstanding candidates who would be comfortable in, stimulated by, and engage with the vibrant cross-disciplinary community that is data science and that are interested in applying quantitative approaches to understand marketing problems.  Prospective candidates must have demonstrated the ability to produce original and innovative scholarly work of the highest possible quality with impact in the top academic journals. Faculty will be expected to teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in analytics and contribute to cross-disciplinary curriculum development activities; ties to industry and access to datasets will be a plus. The Questrom School of Business offers generous research and teaching support.

The Marketing department believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. We are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor. Boston University is an institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American University to award a Ph.D. to a woman and of our record of inclusiveness.

Required Credentials

We seek candidates with a PhD in Marketing or related fields, whose research leverages their deep expertise in quantitative marketing, and have experience working with large datasets and/or field experimentation.
