2016 OB Division Doctoral Consortium

AOM ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

August 5-6, 2016

The 2016 OB Doctoral Consortium will be held August 5 and 6 as part of the pre-conference program at the Academy of Management meetings in Anaheim. The consortium is open to OB doctoral students in the final stages of their programs.

The two-day consortium will begin on Friday afternoon and will continue throughout the day on Saturday – participants must attend both days. The program includes an interesting and energetic mix of presentations, discussions, and interactive sessions designed to launch doctoral students into their academic careers. Faculty presentations and roundtable sessions include topics such as crafting the right academic job, succeeding at research and publishing, preparing for effective teaching, and an ethics workshop, as well as other related topics.

OB is the biggest division in the Academy and in the past few years, we have received more applications that we can accommodate. To keep the faculty-participant ratio to an optimal size, we will accept only 1 student per program.

Applicants must meet the following criteria.

1. Be nominated by the program/department. Only one application per program will be accepted (e.g., one from management, one from industrial relations, and/or one from I/O Psychology).

2. Endorsed by the students’ academic advisor.

3. Preference is given to those who have made the most progress toward completing their Ph.D., but have not yet defended their dissertation. This consortium is for advanced OB students who plan to apply for faculty positions in 2016 that begin in 2017.

The deadline for receipt of nominations and supporting materials is Friday, March 11, 2016, 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).

See below for instructions on how to submit your materials.
