If you are an Assistant Professor (or post-doc) and teach or conduct research in the domain of Technology and Innovation Management, the TIM Junior Faculty Consortium is for you! The TIM Junior Faculty Consortium will be held at the 2019 Academy of Management meeting in Boston on Friday August 9 and Saturday morning August 10 and is organized by the Technology and Innovation Management division of the Academy.

The Consortium will provide insights that you need to thrive in the increasingly challenging academic environment. It focuses on strategies for building a career and increasing impact as a scholar and teacher. It will feature outstanding senior faculty members with proven research and teaching records, who will lead three interactive discussions about how to balance the competing pressures of teaching, research and service. They will provide first-hand and detailed advice about how to build a successful academic career in a range of different institutional settings. Participants will also learn about strategies for publishing in top journals, and engage with editors of prestigious journals in the field. Most importantly, participants will receive feedback on their “research trajectory” from their peers and senior faculty. The consortium will also provide participants with opportunities for networking with new peers and senior colleagues with interests in technology and innovation.

The faculty members committed to the consortium include:

  • Ashish Arora (Duke’s Fuqua School of Business)
  • Diane Burton (Cornell University)
  • Maryann Feldman (University of North Carolina)
