               The Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington, Seattle invites applications for at least one faculty position in marketing beginning September 2018. This appointment will be for at least one full-time, tenure-track position (100% FTE) at the rank of Assistant or Advanced Assistant Professor and is pending the Provost's approval. Successful candidates will have a PhD in Marketing (or related fields) and demonstrate interest in and capacity to conduct high quality scholarly research. The department seeks candidates pursuing rigorous research in all mainstream fields within marketing. University of Washington faculty members engage in research, teaching, and service. Candidates should also have a demonstrated potential to publish in top-tier marketing journals and to teach at a high level of competency.

               The undergraduate and MBA programs of the Foster School were both ranked in the top 10 among public schools by Business Week. PACCAR Hall, one of two new state-of-the-art buildings being developed as part of an expanded business school campus, opened in August 2010. Dempsey Hall, the Annex to PACCAR hall, opened in June 2012. The buildings act as convergence zones for faculty, students, alumni, and business leaders. Through successful hiring and strong research focus, the marketing department has evolved into a group of highly productive scholars representing eclectic research interests including analytical and empirical modeling, consumer behavior, and marketing strategy. Several of our faculty members are MSI Young Scholars, award winning researchers and teachers, and/or editorial board members of leading marketing journals. These faculty members include Nidhi Agrawal, Abhishek Borah, Lea Dunn, Mark Forehand, Shailendra Pratap Jain, Natalie Mizik, Simha Mummalaneni, Robert Palmatier, Oliver Rutz, Amin Sayedi, Ann Schlosser, Jeff Shulman, Richard Yalch, Hema Yoganarasimhan and Jonathan Zhang. In the 2018 US News and World Report b-school rankings, Foster School was ranked 27rd nationally and 9th for public business schools. Seattle, the location of the Foster School, is a culturally rich city offering a picturesque setting, vibrant life style and innumerable recreational opportunities, and the location for the headquarters of a number of global firms (Amazon, Costco, Expedia, Microsoft, Nintendo, Nordstrom, REI, Starbucks, and T-Mobile, among others). Not surprisingly, it is considered to be one of the most desirable cities to live in the western hemisphere. More information about the Foster School is available at
