OMT Doctoral Student ConsortiumCall for ApplicationsDeadline: May 15, 2009
The Organization and Management Theory (OMT) Division and the Management and Organizational Cognition (MOC) Division are pleased to announce that their joint Doctoral Student Consortium will once again be part of the pre-conference activities at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting.
The goal of this consortium is to help doctoral students who are broadly interested in organizations, management, and cognition to organize their thoughts about the final phase of their doctoral programs, advance their research, publish their dissertation or parts thereof, find a job in the academic or professional world, and, perhaps most importantly, establish professional networks with colleagues who share similar research interests. In order to maintain a high faculty/student ratio, space for this consortium is strictly limited.The consortium will include a variety of presentations, interactive discussion sessions, and workshops. It has been designed to allow for high levels of interaction between faculty and students. The deadline for nominations is May 15, 2009.Interested students must be nominated by their schools. No university can nominate more than two students, and each doctoral program is limited to one nomination. Universities with multiple departments seeking to send students need to coordinate their nominations. Applications should be emailed to consortium organizers (see email addresses below) by the department representative who nominates the student and should include the following in the body of the email:• the nominee's name, address, e-mail address, phone and fax numbers, name of affiliated school and university,• the division (OMT or MOC) that the student considers to be his/her primary affiliation, and• a statement from the department certifying the nominee's completion of doctoral coursework and comprehensive exams by August 1, 2008.Three supporting items should be attached to the e-mail:(1) a brief letter from a faculty member providing a general appraisal of the nominee, including an assessment of his/her progress toward a dissertation defense, expected defense date, and subject of dissertation;(2) a 1 page bio summarizing the nominee's contact information, research and teaching interests, and publications; and(3) a 3-5 page summary of the student's research project.Additional information about the OMT/MOC Doctoral Consortium is available on both the OMT and MOC Websites.
