FULL PROFESSOR OF MARKETING; Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands, invites applications for the position of a Full (tenured) Professor of Marketing in the Department of Marketing at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration.

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has been a renowned cultural, scientific and commercial center for many centuries. It was here, in 1880, that the Vrije Universiteit first opened its doors to students. The VU (www.vu.nl) aims to be inspiring, innovative and involved. It now comprises twelve faculties and has teaching facilities for 17,000 students. The university campus and university hospital are situated in the south-western part of Amsterdam, one of the most dynamic and fast-growing business districts in the Netherlands. The international airport of Schiphol-Amsterdam is just 8 minutes away by train. Both the research and the educational programs of the Vrije Universiteit are of a high quality (the work of different research groups have been evaluated to be of world class; the educational programs of Economics and Business Administration have been rated by students among the best in the country).

The Department of Marketing is a young, ambitious and expanding group oriented towards the international marketing community. Currently, the Department has about 10 faculty members, 5 adjunct faculty and 4 Ph.D. students. Although the Department hosts different specialization areas within Marketing, we focus particularly on Marketing Strategy. The Department is committed to creating a stimulating working environment. We strive for high quality in both research and educational programs. We offer a broad scope of marketing courses, including a full-time Master of Science in Marketing program (fully in English). Our research program especially focuses on topics within the area of marketing strategy, such as innovation and customer relationships. For more information, see: www.feweb.vu.nl/marketing

The Department of Marketing seeks to further strengthen its position. We are therefore looking for candidates with a Ph.D. in Marketing or related areas and who are enthusiastic about contributing to the ambitious goals of the Department. Especially, we seek a candidate who is committed to excellence in both research and education. This should be visible from the candidate’s high quality past performance, such as an international research profile and good teaching evaluations. Both applicants with demonstrable potential for high quality research as well as senior candidates with high quality past performance are welcome to reflect. Given the specialization area of the Marketing department, we favor candidates who are especially interested in strategic issues in marketing. Also, applicants should have a positive attitude towards inspiring junior faculty members and cooperation in joint research projects. The teaching load will be limited. Senior faculty members will share the administrative tasks. Candidates do not need to have knowledge of the Dutch language (passive knowledge of the language after 2 years is required), but should be fluent in English.

We offer a stimulating working environment with many opportunities for growth and new initiatives. Salaries are negotiable and include additional benefits.

For information, please contact Ruud Frambach, Chair of the MarketingDepartment (see for contact details below). Candidates who are interested to apply for this position are requested to send a detailed resume containing educational data, a list of publications, teaching experience and evaluations, administrative experience as well as any other information that may be relevant for the position to the address below.
