Stockholm School of Economics invites applications at the assistant professor level for a tenure track position in business administration, with a focus on social media in marketing and retailing. Applicants are expected to engage in both research and teaching in this area. Strong competence in teaching and using advanced quantitative research methods is desirable. An ability to teach other areas of marketing and retailing is also valuable.
The tenure track position is located at the Center for Retailing/The Department of Marketing and Strategy. It is financed through the Antonia Ax:son Johnson Tutorial Program and the candidate will be part of the core faculty in the Retail Management Program run at the Center for Retailing.

Qualified candidates should hold a doctoral degree or its equivalent, or must have completed said requirement before taking up the position. Candidates are expected to be strong in terms of both research and teaching.
In research, the successful candidate should exhibit a research track record, as evidenced by publications in well-reputed scientific journals, a presence in the international research community, and a strong research and publication pipeline.
