    OMT Junior Faculty Consortium: Deadline extended to June 30

    Apply here:

    The Organization and Management Theory Division is hosting a 100% virtual Junior Faculty Consortium this year. If you have started a faculty position in the last few years, this consortium is for you!

    The consortium will provide an intimate forum for interacting with senior colleagues and peers about how to prosper in your academic career. It will include a combination of focused feedback sessions, panels, and facilitated discussions focused on three main areas: 1) developing your research for publication with the help of seasoned scholars in your area, 2) strategies for impact and growth as a researcher and teacher, and 3) navigating the early years of building a successful faculty career in diverse institutional settings. We will also explore the implications that the COVID-19 pandemic may have for all of these issues.

    This year's faculty mentors offer diverse scholarly and geographic perspectives. Many have been editors for leading journals and won research and teaching awards. The roster includes:

    • Olav Sorenson, Yale University
    • Tyler Wry, University of Pennsylvania
    • David Zhu, University of Arizona
    • Sun Hyun Park, Seoul National University
    • Amit Nigam, City University of London
