    The School of Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, one of the leading engineering educational institutions in Latin America and ranked among the top four emerging leader schools of engineering worldwide, invites outstanding candidates to apply for a full-time faculty position belonging to the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department.

    The successful applicant's duties will include teaching (at undergraduate and graduate levels) and conducting research in Marketing Analytics. In particular, the applicant should be able to apply innovative quantitative methodologies (including Data Science) to leading edge research in Marketing Science and its application to technology-based products and services.

    Applicants must hold a Ph.D. (or be currently pursuing studies towards the degree) in Marketing or related areas with a strong background in Analytics and Decision Sciences. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the School of Engineering, it is important that the applicant is willing to work collaboratively; some international experience is also desirable.

    The skill to conduct high-quality, scholarly research is a minimum requirement. In addition, candidates should be qualified to work with academic teams, and lead scientific and industry-liaison initiatives. Experience in interdisciplinary collaboration is highly valued as the selected candidate will be expected to interact with other faculty within the Department and School, participate in and develop research projects, and be involved in an active research agenda.

    Excellence in teaching is also expected, and selected candidates will be required to create new undergraduate and graduate courses and teach traditional courses like Marketing, Statistics, Data Science, as well as to participate actively in the development of the curriculum. Successful candidates will be required to teach three semester-long undergraduate or graduate courses per year. Spanish language is not required at the time of application but should become the language of teaching before the end of the second year.

    In sum, applicants must demonstrate potential for excellence and a strong academic vocation for all aspects of university life, be highly motivated to continuously improve their teaching skills, have a genuine interest in getting involved with our graduate programs (specially the doctoral program) and be able to develop and maintain an active research agenda (publications, research grants, etc.).
