Successful candidates will be expected to conduct high-quality research with publications in top-tier marketing journals, actively pursue research grants, and have the ability and willingness to supervise graduate students. They will also be expected to contribute to the School’s undergraduate and graduate academic programs at both its Hamilton and Burlington locations through excellent teaching, course development, and student mentorship.
