Call for Participants
2023 Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) Division
Junior Faculty and Doctoral Consortium
The OSCM Division is proud to announce a joint Junior Faculty and Doctoral Consortium at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AoM). This event will be held on Friday, August 4th, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Save the whole afternoon though; we are preparing a social event between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 pm.
This consortium is a regular feature of the division’s conference professional development workshop (PDW) program. It has been helping doctoral students and junior faculty to further their research and build their professional network with peers and senior faculty. Students who have attended previous consortia find this event uniquely beneficial due to the dual focus on developing research and social ties.

Research incubator session
A round table setup allows senior and junior faculty to provide feedback and guidance as well as doctoral students to ask questions and learn about building a research identity.
Panel discussions for advancing your career
Panel discussions with various faculty from universities in multiple countries will share their tips and advice on preparing to the job market, publishing & teaching, juggling family with career, collaborating, and ethical concerns.
Learning from the giants’ session
Managing an academic career takes skills beyond the knowledge of how to research and teach. This session will share some of the tacit knowledge acquired by senior scholars over a period of years.
To help doctoral students and junior faculty to navigate the difficult task of integrating into the academic community after socially distanced pandemic conditions, senior scholars in our discipline will engage with consortium participants in various social events. Details coming soon.
Application process & timing
Doctoral students and junior faculty doing empirical research on any OSCM topic may participate.

The consortium is a pre-registration event; all attendees must pre-register in accordance with instructions we will send out to accepted participants.
Doctoral students and junior faculty in developing countries can apply to the OSCM Division DEI Assistance Fund (up to 1,000 US$) by including a letter of request in their application.
This letter should include a statement of their annual doctoral stipend or research/travel budget (signed by their academic advisor or supervisor) and a personal statement expressing their need.
