  • 1.  AOM TIM Doctoral Student Consortium – Call for applications

    Posted 02-21-2022 12:05

    When: August 5, 2022 (Date to be confirmed)


    Application Deadline: June 1, 2021


    Who should apply: Ph.D. candidates researching technology, innovation, and related topics and who are preparing for the tenure-track job- market. Preference will be given to doctoral candidates at later stages of their Ph.D. programs.


    Description: The consortium is organized around three main events:


    (1) Job Market Bootcamp: We will discuss contemporary topics for the upcoming job marketing, such as, how to approach the job market considering the current climate, and, how to prepare for virtual or in-person campus visits including job-talks and interviews. Faculty panelists will also share tips about finishing the dissertation and transitioning from being a student to a faculty member.


    (2) Horizon 2027: Congrats, you landed your dream job! Now what? In small roundtable groups, we will work on a five-year visioning exercise (2022 + 5 = 2027) where you will envision your future research statement and then receive detailed feedback from a faculty mentor on how to plot your path from today to tenure.


    (3) Research Mentorship: Participants will pitch their research (dissertation or job market paper) to a faculty mentor and receive personalized feedback.


    We will also have informal networking sessions throughout and will likely have a group dinner in Seattle.


    Finally, we do not want financial constraints to preclude your participation in the consortium, so please let us know if you require assistance in paying the AOM registration fee. There is a place to do so on the application form.


    Faculty mentors: The program will include a keynote speech by Kathy Eisenhardt (Stanford), and a diverse group of faculty mentors. Confirmed mentors: David Clough (University of British Columbia), Nilanjana Dutt (Bocconi), Wei (Vivian) Gau (CEIBS), Jorge Guzman (Columbia University), Hyunjin Kim (INSEAD), Sruthi Thatchenkery (University College London), Douglas Hannah (Boston University), Younghoon Lee (HKUST), Elizabeth Lyons (University of California San Diego), and Ivanka Visnijic (ESADE).
