    2022 OMT Junior Faculty Consortium

    Academy of Management Annual Meeting
    Friday August 5th, 2022

    Call for Nominations

    Nomination Deadline: May 15, 2022

    We are pleased to announce that the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division will once again hold its Junior Faculty Consortium as part of the Academy of Management (AOM) Annual Meeting. This year the consortium is tentatively scheduled on Friday August 5th, 2022. The current plan is to hold the consortium in a hybrid format: while we hope participants will be able to attend in person, we intend to offer a virtual option so that those who cannot travel to Seattle can take part in the JFC.


    If you have started a faculty position in the last few years, this consortium is for you! The consortium will provide an intimate forum for interacting with senior colleagues and peers about how to prosper in your academic career.


    It will include a combination of feedback sessions, panels, and facilitated discussions focused on four key topics (all on August 5th, 2022):


    1. Developing your research for publication with the help of seasoned scholars in your area.
    2. Strategies for impact and growth as a researcher and teacher.
    3. Navigating the early years of building a successful faculty career in diverse institutional settings. We will also explore the implications that the COVID-19 pandemic may have for all of these issues.
    4. Preparing for promotion and tenure (e.g., building relationships with letter writers, managing relationships with colleagues, creating a research narrative).


    Close to 30 faculty mentors have confirmed their participation in this event. Many have been editors for leading journals and won prestigious research and teaching awards. They represent a range of career levels and geographies and will provide diverse perspectives. The roster includes:


    • Christina Ahmadjian, Hitotsubashi University
    • John Amis, University of Edinburgh
    • Shaz Ansari, University of Cambridge
    • Amanda Cowen, University of Virginia

    Application Instructions


    If you hold a faculty position as an Assistant Professor or comparable rank and your research focuses on OMT related topics, we encourage you to apply to the JFC. We also invite deans, department chairs, former participants, and other faculty to encourage their junior colleagues to apply.


    The consortium is designed to allow for high levels of interaction. In order to maintain a high mentor/participant ratio, space for this consortium remains limited. Interested participants must be OMT members (either already or by joining now).


    Applications are due by May 15 and require submission of the following information:


    1. Your name, email address, title, institutional affiliation
    2. Your curriculum vitae
    3. An extended abstract of a working paper on which you wish to receive feedback (5 pages maximum)
    4. An indication of three faculty mentors who are of most interest to you


    Several waivers of the AOM conference's registration fees and stipends are available to support participants who are interested in applying but lack budget/resources from their schools or otherwise. The nomination deadline again is May 15, 2022


    Please submit your application online via the following link:
