The Management and Organizations (MORS) Department of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position within the Dispute Resolution and Research Center (DRRC). The primary criterion for acceptance is research excellence relevant to conflict or cooperation, broadly defined. The position is slated to start in August or September of 2019 and last for approximately two years. Salary is competitive, and the position will have access to research funding, including for independent projects.
Applicants must have completed a PhD in a social science discipline (e.g., organizational behavior, sociology, psychology, economics)—or in a related discipline that can inform the social sciences (e.g., a “big data” discipline)—prior to the beginning of the fellowship. The Fellow position will conduct original research with one or more faculty members in the MORS department, and applicants are encouraged to identify one or more faculty members with whom they would be interested in collaborating. The Fellow is expected to become actively involved in the MORS and DRRC intellectual communities, by regularly participating in colloquia, workshops, and research seminars. The Fellow is also welcome to audit PhD courses.
For full consideration, please submit application materials by Friday, January 31, 2020. You will be asked to submit (1) a cover letter identifying at least one faculty member with whom you would be interested in collaborating with, (2) a current CV and (3) a research statement that makes clear how your work is relevant to conflict or cooperation, and (4) up to two publications or manuscripts.
