The STR Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who are in the dissertation proposal stage of their PhD programs. The objective of the consortium is to support doctoral students as they shape their dissertations. Students will have opportunities to discuss their work in small groups with distinguished faculty and peers, to meet and interact with future colleagues, and to enhance their scholarship, teaching and overall development.
The 2021 STR Doctoral Consortium will have synchronous and asynchronous components as well as networking components. The synchronous meetings will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 and Wednesday, July 28, 2021 from 8am to 1:00pm EDT.
The 2021 Doctoral Consortium co-chairs are Isin Guler (University of North Carolina) and Metin Sengul (Boston College). The tentative faculty panel includes (by last name in alphabetic order): Seth Carnahan (Washington University in St Louis), Trey Cummings (John Hopkins University), Caroline Flammer (Boston University), Martin Ganco (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Hyunjin Kim (INSEAD), Marlo Raveendran (University of California, Riverside), Charlotte Ren (Temple University), Violina Rindova (University of Southern California), Robert Seamans (New York University), Matthew Semadeni (Arizona State University), Gurneeta Vasudeva Singh (University of Minnesota), and Todd Zenger (University of Utah).

STR Dissertation Consortium: The Job Market and Beyond
The STR Dissertation Consortium is intended for those PhD students who are in the advanced stages of their programs and who are considering the job market during the 2021-2022 academic year (i.e., for faculty positions that begin in Fall 2022). The focus of the STR Dissertation Consortium will be on providing participating students with an opportunity to discuss their job market papers and 'elevator pitches' about their research identity in small groups with distinguished faculty and peers for high-quality, developmental feedback. We will also be using breakout groups during coffee breaks to facilitate student networking.
The co-chairs of the 2021 Dissertation Consortium are Luis Ballesteros (George Washington University) and Vanessa Burbano (Columbia University). The faculty panel includes (by last name in alphabetic order): Rajshree Agarwal (University of Maryland), Xavier Castañer (HEC Lausanne), Christine M.K. Chan (Hong Kong University), Felipe Csaszar (University of Michigan), Teresa Dickler (IE Business School), Sharique Hasan (Duke University), Olenka Kacperczyk (London Business School), Riitta Katila (Stanford University), Weiyi Ng (National University of Singapore), Brian Silverman (University of Toronto), and Yu Zhang (China Europe International Business School)
Priority for admission to the 2021 Dissertation Consortium will be given to students who: (1) have completed drafts of their job market papers, and (2) have not previously attended the STR Doctoral Consortium. However, any doctoral student who is considering to enter the job market and graduate during the 2021-2022 academic year (and who is not applying to the 2021 Doctoral Consortium) may apply. We understand that this year poses significant challenges for students on the job market. We therefore intend cover how to maneuver the challenges and considerations of this year's market, crafting your elevator pitch, and also focus on providing developmental feedback for the publication process on student job market papers.
Interested students should apply via the application website (link below) no later than June 7th, 2021. All applicants will be notified of admission decisions by the end of June 2021.
