    STR Dissertation Consortium: The Job Market and Beyond

     

    Friday, August 2 & Saturday, August 3, 2024 (8:30 am 12:00 pm EDT - Virtual)

    Application Deadline: June 15, 2024

     

    The STR Dissertation Consortium is intended for those PhD students who are in the advanced stages of their programs and who are considering the job market during the 2024-2025 academic year (i.e., for faculty positions that begin in Fall 2025). The focus of the STR Dissertation Consortium will be on providing participating students with an opportunity to discuss their job market papers and 'elevator pitches' about their research identity in small groups with distinguished faculty and peers for high-quality, developmental feedback. We will also be using breakout groups during coffee breaks to facilitate student networking.

    The co-chairs of the 2024 Dissertation Consortium are Seth Carnahan (Olin Business School) and Hyunjin Kim (INSEAD). The faculty panel includes (by last name in alphabetic order): Callen Anthony (NYU), Arnaldo Camuffo (University of Bocconi), Raffaele Conti (ESSEC), Karin Hoisl (Copenhagen Biz School), Brandon Lee (Melbourne Business School), Fabrice Lumineau (HKU Business School), Jiao Luo (University of Minnesota), Kate Odziemkowska (University of Toronto), Sun Park (Seoul National University), Lisa Tang (National University of Singapore), and Yue Maggie Zhou (University of Michigan).  

    Priority for admission to the 2024 Dissertation Consortium will be given to students who: (1) have completed drafts of their job market papers, and (2) have not previously attended the STR Doctoral Consortium. However, any doctoral student who is considering entering the job market and graduate during the 2024-2025 academic year (and who is not applying to the 2024 Doctoral Consortium) may apply. We intend to cover how to maneuver the challenges and considerations of the job market, crafting your elevator pitch, and also focus on providing developmental feedback for the publication process on student job market papers.

    Interested students should apply via the application website (link below) no later than June 15th, 2024. All applicants will be notified of admission decisions by the end of June 2024.

    ***Application website: https://wustl.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eXIzznTnWuzZruK

    The application website will request the following information:

    1. Nomination Letter: Upload your nomination letter. Have your dissertation chair write a nomination letter (on letterhead). The letter should verify that you are considering entering the job market and will graduate during the 2024-2025 academic year. Your supervisor can provide you the letter to upload or you can provide them the link and they can upload it themselves.
    2. Curriculum Vitae: Upload your current CV as a PDF (only). Please name the file as follows: LastName-FirstName-CV.pdf.
    3. Job Market Paper: Upload the current version of your job market paper. You will have the opportunity to provide a revised version of the paper when we get closer to AOM. Please upload as a PDF (only). Please name the file as follows: LastName-FirstName-Paper.pdf.
