PhD Candidate & Junior Faculty Development Workshop

The Strategic Leadership and Corporate Governance Interest Group is offering a research focused PhD Candidate & Junior Faculty Development Workshop at the 2013 Strategic Management Society meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. Although all members of the IG are invited to participate, preference will be given to junior faculty and to PhD candidates who have defended proposals and are on the market.

The workshop will start with a paper development session that offers participants the opportunity to discuss their work in small groups. Participants will exchange feedback during the paper development portion, with each group's discussion being facilitated by one or more experienced scholar(s) familiar with the topic or method in question. Discussants include Brian Connelly, Parthiban David, Karen Schnatterly, Anja Tuschke, and Bob Wiseman.

In addition, there will be a theory development session. Paul Godfrey will provide insights into how to structure ideas and topics, build a model, and develop theory. Participants will work on these questions based on one of their (empirical or theoretical) papers.

Submission Guidelines:

Please note that space will be limited in order to ensure a high level of interaction among all participants. In order to participate, please upload one document that includes the following items by September 4, 2013:

  1. A short letter of motivation.
  2. A paper to discuss.
  3. An additional page that contains a statement committing to attend the workshop if accepted, the permission to distribute submitted works to session participants, and the commitment to prepare written comments and feedback on the other papers in their group.

Applicants will be informed by September 13, 2013 whether their proposal has been accepted. The workshop organizers will group accepted proposals with others that are similar in topic and/or methodology and distribute them to workshop participants.
