STR 2019 New Faculty Consortium

STR 2019 New Faculty Consortium

Saturday, August 10, 2019 (8:00am-5:00pm)

Deadline for Applying: June 1, 2019

Are you a new faculty member with interests in Strategic Management (STR) or transitioning into STR from a different field?  If the answer is “yes,” consider joining us for this year’s STR New Faculty Consortium!  It is scheduled to take place on Saturday August 10th 2019 at the AoM Meeting in Boston. 

Any STR member who has completed her/his dissertation by September 2018 and is in the first through the third year of their academic career is welcome to apply.  In addition, a participant should have a record of commitment to teaching and research in the Strategy/Business Policy field and should not have participated in prior STR Junior Faculty Consortia.

The objective of the Consortium is to enhance the scholarship, teaching, and overall career development of faculty in the early stages of their careers.  The consortium provides an excellent forum for discussing research and teaching and for expanding one’s academic network.

The Co-Chairs for the 2019 Consortium are Jeff Furman (Boston University) and Louise Mors (Copenhagen Business School).  We have recruited several faculty panelists so far, including Gautam Ahuja, Tima Bansal, Peer Fiss, Melissa Graebner, Isin Guler and Connie Helfat.   

Highlights include interactive, panellist-led discussions on teaching, research, and tenure, as well as small-group discussions on topics such as service commitments, work-life balance, research funding, and other participant-generated topics. Panelists include editors from leading Strategy and Management journals (SMJ, OS, MS and SEJ). The day will conclude with one-to-one discussions between panellists and participants on specific research projects on which the participants are working. We aim for an engaging, constructive and enjoyable day!
