About the Institute:
The Institute for Interactive Marketing & Social Media (IMSM) aims at being a leading institution for research and education in the area of digital marketing. The rapid growth of digital technologies and social media has a profound impact on consumer behavior, leading to radically new businesses and challenging incumbents to adapt their marketing strategies. Our goal is to do research that focuses on new business problems and groundbreaking innovations arising from developments in information technology. We use empirical data (mostly in the form of "big data") and apply quantitative methods to tackle and solve these problems in order to ultimately make better marketing decisions and realize more desirable outcomes for firms and consumers.


Your responsibilities:
We are looking for a dynamic, self-motivated individual with a desire to embark on an academic career. You will join a vibrant and ambitious team of internationally minded academics aspiring to the highest standards of research and teaching. Collaboration with other members of the university and our international network will be actively supported.
Regarding the substantive focus, we seek an individual conducting cutting-edge research in the fields of digital marketing and social media. Developments in information technology have increased access to large-scale data on consumer behavior, which we use in our projects to help firms make better marketing decisions (“data-driven marketing”). Current focus areas for which we seek applications include:
  • programmatic advertising
  • (digital) advertising effectiveness
  • social media marketing
  • field experiments and quasi-experimental designs
  • machine learning in marketing

    You can learn more about these focus areas and our current research projects here:

    You will also be welcome to pursue your research ideas related to these topics and will be working on your own independent research activities (i.e. dissertation/PhD). Your work should eventually be aimed at helping companies make better marketing decisions – it is empirical in nature and typically located at the interface of information systems and marketing.

    For you to succeed, WU Vienna offers a well-structured, three-year PhD-Program
    (?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wu.ac.at%2Fen%2Fprograms%2Fdoctoral-phd-programs%2Fphd-program-in-economic-and-socialsciences%2Foverview&module=jobs&id=240" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://www.wu.ac.at/en/programs/doctoral-phd-programs/phd-program-in-economic-and-socialsciences/overview), which is designed to deepen your methodological and analytical skill set andencourages international exchange. In addition, our Institute conducts recurring doctoral seminars with a focus on improving ongoing research projects.

We expect very good knowledge of statistics and empirical research methods. This includes the ability to analyze data sets using traditional econometrics (e.g., with R) OR machine learning methods (e.g., using PyTorch). Experience in teaching (e.g., as student assistant or tutor) and interest in didactic methods are an asset. An excellent grasp of written and spoken English is essential and experience in digital marketing (e.g., through internships or student jobs) is beneficial.

Beyond any formal requirements, we are looking for enthusiastic, curious team players who are passionate about research and willing to take on responsibility. You should have a passion for digital marketing and social media and its analytical opportunities to improve marketing decisions.
