Position Detail

The Owen Graduate School at Vanderbilt University is offering a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in Marketing for newly-graduating Ph.D.s commencing in the fall of 2015.


Post docs are expected to work closely with Owen faculty on research projects. To be eligible, candidates must complete their PhD by summer 2015 in marketing or a related area such as psychology or decision sciences.  The strongest candidates will be those whose interests align closely with Owen marketing faculty, and where the post-doc and faculty member(s) can foresee developing joint research projects.  We encourage applicants to look in detail at Owen faculty research, and identify faculty with similar interests and research.

The 2-year fellowship will begin in August of 2015.  During the period of the fellowship, the fellows are expected to be in residence, work with faculty on research projects, and participate in research seminars in the school.  It may also be possible for candidates to teach one 7-week MBA course each year, if desired by the candidate. Well-qualified candidates will also desire an academic career in marketing and demonstrate research productivity.
