  • 1.  HR Division Late-Stage Doctoral Consortium: Call for applications/pre-registration

    Posted 03-10-2021 20:41


    We are currently accepting applications for the 2021 HR Division Late-Stage Doctoral Student Consortium, which will be held virtually on Friday, July 30 at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management.

    Highlights include:
    * Networking event
    * Keynote address by Maria Kraimer, Rutgers University
    One-on-one dissertation feedback from leading scholars in the field of HR.
    * A variety of presenters and interactive panels about managing the job search, giving a successful job talk, negotiating job offers, publishing impactful research, and teaching effectively

    * Roundtable discussions with the editors of major journals (e.g., Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology).

    The HR Doctoral Student Consortium is open to doctoral students actively working on their dissertations. Is it expected that applicants will be (1) members of the HR Division; (2) finished with all required coursework; and (3) on track to have their dissertation/thesis proposal approved by their supervising committee before the conference. Unfortunately we cannot accept applicants that have already completed their PhD. In addition, please note that because space is limited, only one student per program is typically allowed to participate. However, one additional qualified student from a given program may be accepted upon the request of a candidate's doctoral program coordinator. 

    To help with registration fees, the HR Division is making scholarships available to students accepted to the Late-Stage Doctoral Consortium. When completing the registration survey, you will be asked to indicate whether you need funding.

    Application Process:
    There is no charge for the Consortium, but you will need to pre-register by Saturday, May 15, 2021. To pre-register, complete the form (https://memphis.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1zFtAM3zpnNuTBz). Please note, the form should be endorsed and e-signed by your doctoral program. Additionally, you will also be asked to upload a 1-2 page CV with contact information, education, research/teaching interests, publications, and conference presentations for distribution to all attendees.

    We hope you join us for this educational and fun experience for emerging HR scholars! Please contact any of the organizers of the consortium (see below) should you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in August!
