    TIM Virtual Doctoral Student Consortium – Call for applications

    When: Friday August 7 2020; 8am-1pm PDT (Vancouver time) 

    Application Deadline: June 20, 2020

    Who should apply: The TIM doctoral consortium is aimed at Ph.D. candidates interested in technology, innovation, and related topics and who are preparing for the tenure-track job market. Preference is given to doctoral candidates at later stages of their PhD.


    Description: The consortium is organized around three main events:

    (1) Job Market Bootcamp: How should I approach the job market considering the current health and economic situation? How should I prepare for virtual campus visits including job-talks and 1:1 interview? We will also have a panel to share tips about finishing your dissertation and finding a job from home.

    (2) Horizon 2025: Congrats, you got the dream job! Now you want to get tenure. We will spend another roundtable on a five-year visioning exercise (2020 + 5 = 2025) where you will forecast your future research statement and then receive detailed feedback from a faculty mentor on how to get there from here.

    (3) Research Mentorship: Participants will have the opportunity to pitch their research to a faculty mentor and receive research feedback.

    We will have informal networking sessions taking advantage of Zoom's wonderful breakout rooms, and participants will be invited to the (in person!) reception that the TIM Doctoral Student Consortium will organize during AOM 2021 in Philadelphia.

    Finally, we do not want financial constraints to preclude your participation to the consortium, so please let us know if the you require assistance in paying the AOM registration fee.


    Faculty mentors: The program will include a keynote speech by Riitta Katila (Stanford University), and mentors come from a range of stages in career and research institutions.
