The Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt offers, subject to budgetary approval, a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Marketing for newly graduating Ph.D.s commencing in the fall.

Post docs are expected to work closely with Owen faculty on research projects. To be eligible, candidates must complete their PhD by July, prior to starting the fellowship, 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.

About the Fellowship

The two-year fellowship begins in July. During the period of the fellowship, the fellows are expected to be in residence, work with faculty on research projects, assist in the behavioral lab, and participate in research seminars in the school. It may also be possible for candidates to teach one seven-week MBA course each year, if desired by the candidate and Marketing Area. Well-qualified candidates will also desire an academic career in marketing and demonstrate research productivity.
