• Doctoral consortium nominations

    We are seeking nominations for the 2024 AOM OB Doctoral Student Consortium. The consortium will take place in person at the Annual AOM conference. It is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August 10, 2024, from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM local time. The Organizational Behavior Doctoral Consortium is designed for students who are in the final year of their doctoral program (i.e., students who will be on the job market in fall 2024 and who have made significant progress on their dissertation/thesis research). Therefore, priority will be given to students who have made the most progress toward completing their Ph.D. program (e.g., defended a dissertation proposal, completed data collection), but who have not yet defended their dissertation.  

    The consortium includes a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and interactive sessions designed to launch doctoral students into their academic careers. Faculty presentations, interactive panels with journal editors, and roundtable sessions include topics such as crafting the right academic job, acing the job talk, succeeding in research and publishing from the perspective of a panel of editors, and starting or participating in effective and inclusive collaborations. More than 50 faculty members have volunteered to speak and/or host roundtable discussions.

    Nomination Requirements: The completed nomination should be submitted by the nominating department/school/advisor, via the survey below.  Only nominations submitted via this survey will be considered. There is no formal restriction on the number of students a program may submit. However, we request that programs only nominate students who meet the selection criteria (e.g., only nominate students who are in the final year of their doctoral program, as opposed to early-stage students who would be better served in a future year).  In the case of space limitations, admission decisions will be made based on demonstrated progress toward the applicant's dissertation and broader research portfolio.

    The following information must be provided:

    • The nominee's one-page vita/bio in PDF format (longer documents may be rejected). Please name the file with the nominee's last name followed by ShortCV (e.g., SmithShortCV.pdf). 
    • The nominee's one-page summary of dissertation/thesis research in PDF format (title and abstract is fine; longer summaries may be rejected). Please name the file with the nominee's last name followed by Research (e.g., SmithResearch.pdf). 
    • Advisor/program chair endorsement. 

    Nominations will only be accepted via the following Qualtrics survey:

    Nomination deadline: Friday, April 26, 2024 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time).
