Are you an early career researcher (e.g. Assistant Professor, Lecturer, Post-Doctoral Fellow) whose research looks at organizational development or organizational change? Then join us for the first ever ODC Junior Faculty Consortium at AOM! The day will be packed full of insights into the field of organizational change, mentoring from senior scholars in the field, advice from journal editors, and career perspectives from people who have been through it all, on different paths. It is crafted to give you insights into how you can navigate your career in the years after your Ph.D.
The 2019 ODC Junior Faculty Consortium will be held on Saturday, August 10th, 2019 as part of the pre- conference program at the Academy of Management meetings in Boston, Massachusetts.
It is aimed at early career researchers interested in studying issues associated with any aspect of change and changing. We welcome and encourage scholars at all stages of their early PhD life – including Assistant Professors, Lecturers, Post-Doctoral Researchers and people with other, roughly equivalent job titles.
The consortium will provide opportunities for structured discussion and informal interaction between early career researchers and more senior faculty concerning research, publishing, and early career issues. In small group coaching sessions, participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their ongoing research with faculty members who will give feedback and help further advance participants’ work toward publishable results. This is a great opportunity to meet prominent scholars in the field from around the world and to network with peers.
