Presently, the Marketing Group has expertise in consumer decision making and behavior, consumer culture theory, brand management, digital marketing and marketing communications, product and service innovation, social marketing, and business-to-business marketing.

We host a research mobiliser group focused on consumer well-being to complement those in responsible business and international business. 

We are looking for a Professor to help further the group’s research trajectory. We are open to all sub-disciplinary areas and agnostic in terms of methodological preference. As a Professor, you will be expected to mentor junior faculty and contribute to the strategic direction of the group.
