Organization Studies, Owen Graduate School of Management

The Organization Studies area at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management announces, subject to budgetary approval, two‐year post‐doctoral fellowships for newly‐graduating PhDs in organizational behavior, human resource management, or other closely-related fields, covering topics such as employment relationships, human capital, compensation, ethics, and negotiation, cross-cultural management, employee voice, and diversity.

Postdocs are expected to work closely with Owen faculty on new research projects, while making progress toward publication of their current work. To be eligible, candidates must complete their Ph.D. by summer 2019. The strongest candidates will be those whose interests align closely with Owen faculty, and where the post‐doc and faculty member can foresee developing joint research projects. We encourage applicants to look in detail at Owen faculty research, and identify faculty with similar interests and ongoing research activity. To see a list of our faculty, select “Organization Studies” on this page.  

 
The two‐year fellowship will begin in August of 2019. In additional to salary and benefits, postdocs receive an annual allowance for research/conference‐related travel and expenses. In addition, the school provides computers and computer support. During the period of the fellowship, fellows are expected to be in residence, work with faculty on research projects, participate in research seminars in the school and teach one course each year or otherwise contribute to the teaching and research mission of the school.
