    Time: 8:00 AM to 5:30PM, Friday, August 9, 2024

    The STR Division is pleased to sponsor the 2024 STR Junior Faculty Consortium which will be held face-to-face at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in 2024.

    The STR Junior Faculty Consortium brings together teaching- and research-oriented faculty who have recently completed their PhD programs. The objective is to enhance the scholarship, teaching, and overall professional development of faculty in early stages of their careers at different types of institutions across the world. The consortium seeks to provide opportunities for participants to engage in research discussions with peers and distinguished scholars, exchange ideas about research and teaching practices, and other aspects of their career. It will feature interactive discussions about how to balance the competing pressures of teaching, research and service. Senior faculty mentors will provide first-hand and detailed advice about how to build a successful academic career in a range of different institutional settings. Most importantly, participants will receive feedback on their "research and professional  trajectory" from their peers and senior faculty.


    Our confirmed faculty mentors are Vikas Aggarwal (INSEAD), Sharon Alvarez (University of Pittsburgh), Paolo Aversa (King's College London), Sandro Cabral (Insper), Xavier Castaner (University of Lausanne), Martin Ganco (University of Wisconsin), Koen Heimeriks (The University of Warwick), Umit Ozmel (Purdue University), Sai Yayavaram (Indian Institute of Management Bangalore), and Anthea Zhang (Rice University).

    The 2024 AOM STR Junior Faculty Consortium will take place on Friday, August 9, 2024, 8:00 AM to 5:30PM. Pre-registration is required. To qualify, applicants must have completed their dissertation by September 2023, should be at least starting as an assistant professor in an academic institution in the Fall of 2024, ideally be in the first through the fourth year of their academic career by the time of the consortium. Selection for participation in the consortium is competitive given space limitations. Priority will be given to applicants in early years of their faculty position or those who have started a tenure track position. In addition, a participant should have a record of teaching and research in strategic management or closely related fields and not have participated in prior STR Junior Faculty Consortia. All participants must also be registered for the Academy of Management Conference.
