    The postdoctoral fellow will join in the ongoing research of Profs. Henrich Greve and Vibha Gaba on the themes of Organizational Learning, Behavioral Decision Making, and Diffusion Processes. The ideal candidate for this postdoctoral fellowship is a recent Ph.D. graduate interested in entrepreneurship or strategic management topics who can provide research support in analyses involving programming and data analyses and possibly join as an author on some projects. The role also involves time dedicated to publishing the candidate's own ongoing research projects.

    Position 2:

The ideal candidate for this postdoctoral fellowship is a recent Ph.D. graduate interested in studying financial markets (e.g., stock markets, venture capital) applying strategic management and organizational theories. Strong technical skills in programming and empirical analysis are desirable. The fellowship will allow the recipient to continue and publish their ongoing research and collaborate with Prof. Naumovska (and some of her other collaborators) on new research projects.

    In addition, the candidates will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with the Entrepreneurship Faculty at INSEAD and participate in all the department and school-wide research initiatives such as the brown bag series, research seminars, and conferences.
