(Application deadline: April 30, 2017)
The OMT Division is pleased to announce the 2017 OMT Junior Faculty Consortium. If you have started a faculty position in the last few years, this workshop is for you!
The workshop provides an intimate forum for interacting with senior colleagues and peers to enable you to prosper in your academic career. The workshop focuses on:
You will have a chance to interact with an exciting team of faculty mentors and diverse peers who provide developmental feedback on your research, benefit from interesting and relevant panels, participate in roundtable discussions and informal conversations and build potentially lifelong networks.
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 workshop will be held on the Friday prior to the Academy of Management meetings in Atlanta. On Thursday, August 3rd, we start with an informal dinner/mixer at 6:30pm. On Friday, August 4th, the program runs from 8:00 am to 4:15 pm. Research and professional development roundtables and panels run until 2:30 pm. From 2:45-4:15 pm, the forum joins the OMT Teaching Roundtables to give you the opportunity to talk with exemplary scholars-teachers in small groups about courses and techniques for high impact teaching.
To facilitate close personal engagement, space for this workshop is limited and participation is by application only. We expect about 30 participants. If you hold a faculty position as an Assistant Professor or a comparable rank and your research focuses on OMT related topics, we encourage you to apply. We also invite deans, department chairs, former workshop alumni and other faculty to encourage their junior colleagues to apply.
