(Application deadline: May 29, 2016)
The OMT Division is pleased to announce the 2016 OMT Junior Faculty workshop. 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 about how to prosper in your academic career. The workshop focuses on three areas: First, on developing your research for publication with the help of seasoned scholars in your area; second, on strategies for impact and growth as a scholar and teacher, and third, on navigating the early years of building a successful faculty career in diverse institutional settings. You will have a chance to interact with an exciting team of Faculty Fellows and diverse peers through developmental feedback on your research, panels, roundtable discussions and informal conversations.
This year’s Faculty Fellows offer diverse scholarly and geographic perspectives. Many have been editors for leading journals and won research and teaching awards. The roster includes:
The workshop will be held on the Friday prior to the Academy of Management meetings in Anaheim. It starts with an optional informal dinner/mixer on Thursday evening, August 4th, at 6 :30pm. The workshop program on Friday, August 7, runs from 8:00am to 5:00 pm. Research and professional development roundtables and panels run until 2:30pm. From 3:00 to 5:00pm, the OMT Teaching Roundtables give you a chance 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 and 20 Fellows. If you hold a faculty position as an Assistant Professor or 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.
To apply, please email Anne-Claire Pache (
