Lehigh University (Two Positions)

Position 1: Assistant Professor of Marketing
Position 2: Open rank – Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor of Marketing

Lehigh University’s Department of Marketing in the College of Business & Economics seeks to fill two positions. Both positions have an effective date of Fall 2009. One position is at assistant professor level (tenure track) and the second position is open rank: assistant, associate, or full professor (tenured or tenure track). Candidates must have a research-focused doctorate in marketing.

Prospective candidates with strong behavioral, analytical, statistical, or other rigorous research training and with interests in substantive issues such as integrated product/service design and development, consumer judgment and choice, market-based assets, innovation generation and diffusion, marketing strategies for new products and services, R&D-marketing interface, role of technology in the marketing of products and services, Internet marketing, and other related topics in marketing are strongly urged to apply.

The primary research focus of the Marketing faculty at Lehigh University is in the domain of “Marketing Innovation” and related areas. Marketing Innovation is defined broadly to include all activities involved with strategic planning, concept generation, concept testing, development, and the launching of new products and services from consumers’ and marketing managers’ perspectives. The Marketing Department intends to develop interdisciplinary research linkages with other departments and research centers within the College and across the University (e.g., engineering and psychology).

Assistant Professor candidates must demonstrate an ability to conduct scholarly research resulting in publications in leading journals, have promise for scholarly distinction, and show evidence of ability to teach effectively. Candidates for Associate Professor and Professor must demonstrate commensurate accomplishments in research, teaching, and service. Team teaching, participation in distance education programs, and development of web-based instruction are expected of all faculty members.
