CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 2020 Doctoral Student Professional Development Consortium

If you are a doctoral student with aspirations to research and teach in public or nonprofit management, consider applying to the Doctoral Student Professional Development Consortium of the Public and Nonprofit (PNP) Division of the Academy of Management (AOM) to take place Saturday, August 8th in Vancouver. This is an excellent opportunity to meet representatives from a wide variety of public and nonprofit programs and to make connections that may assist in the job search process. The Doctoral Consortium includes:

  1. Panels and personal feedback on finding an academic job,
  2. Individual feedback from senior scholars on your existing research or proposal, and
  3. Unparalleled networking opportunities among peers, future colleagues, and potential employers.

Doctoral students at any stage are welcome to apply to the consortium, and the consortium is especially beneficial for students who are in the dissertation proposal development stage or later. As part of the Doctoral Consortium, students will have an opportunity to discuss their research proposals or current projects with faculty members in the field.

To apply, please submit a one- to three-page research proposal or abstract of a research paper by 5:00 pm ET on Friday, March 27, 2020. If you have decided on a dissertation topic, your submission should be a short synopsis of the dissertation. If you have not yet selected a dissertation topic, briefly outline a potential research project that could be shaped into a dissertation.

Students accepted to participate in the Consortium must register for the AOM conference. However, there is no additional fee to participate in the Consortium. Response to this advance call will enable accepted applicants to be listed in the AOM meeting program. This may assist in securing funding from universities, departments, or other funders that require proof of participation before funding conference travel. A small number of scholarships will be funded by the PNP division.

Please direct questions to the PNP Doctoral Consortium Co-Chairs, Erynn Beaton at beaton.13@osu.edu or Megan LePere-Schloop at lepere-schloop.1@osu.edu .
