2009 OMT JUNIOR FACULTY CONSORTIUMAugust 6-7, 2009
The OMT division is pleased to present the annual OMT Junior Faculty workshop. If you hold an assistant professor rank (or its equivalent), this professional development workshop is for you. The workshop provides a forum for interacting with senior colleagues to glean insights into the knowledge that you need to prosper in both the local and global academic environment. The workshop focuses on strategies for impact as a scholar and teacher, as well as on building a career in diverse professional settings. In the workshop, you will have a chance to interact with an exciting team of workshop Fellows through panels, discussion and informal talk, and to meet many other peers early in their careers.
The OMT Division focuses on building and testing theory about organizations, their management and members, inter-organizational relations and environments and organizing processes. If you are an Assistant Professor and your research focuses on these areas, then you are a perfect candidate for the OMT Jr. Faculty Consortium.
The roster of Fellows for the 2009 Workshop includes:
The workshop will be held just prior to the Academy of Management meetings in Chicago, starting with an informal dinner at 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 6th and will continue through 5:00 pm Friday, August 7th. The Teaching Roundtable will be 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7th. This is an opportunity to talk with exemplary scholars-teachers in small groups about specific courses and techniques for high-impact teaching.
There is limited enrollment to ensure that Fellows and participants have ample time to interact in formal and informal settings. We expect 35-40 new faculty participants and the 15 Fellows. You are more than welcome to self-nominate, but we also encourage deans, department chairs, former workshop alumni and other senior faculty to suggest this workshop to junior faculty whom they think would benefit from the experience. To apply, send a nomination letter (or self-nomination) that includes the following:
1. Name, address, email address, telephone and fax numbers, and institutional affiliation.
2. A one page description of current research interests to introduce you to other participants.
3. Your curriculum vitae.
Apply as soon as possible as space is limited, but no later than June 1, 2009.
Accepted participants will be required to pay $100.00 USD to defer the costs of dinner, breakfast and lunch served during the consortium.

We are looking forward to your participation!
