Please see below the official ad for postdoctoral position in the Dispute Resolution Research Center (DRRC) at the Kellogg School of Management. We plan to hire two postdoctoral fellows for a position slated to begin in August or September, 2017. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
Postdocs will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty throughout the Northwestern community. Postdocs will also have the freedom to pursue their own independent research; the position comes with an independent research budget that can be augmented through internal grants.
The Management and Organizations (MORS) Department of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University invites applications for two Postdoctoral Fellow positions within the Dispute Resolution and Research Center (DRRC). The primary criterion for acceptance is research excellence relevant to conflict or cooperation, broadly defined; there is no teaching requirement. The positions are slated to start in August or September of 2017 and last for approximately two years. Salary is competitive, and Fellows 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. Fellows 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. Fellows are expected to become actively involved in the MORS and DRRC intellectual communities, by regularly participating in colloquia, workshops, and research seminars. Fellows are also welcome to audit PhD courses.
Information about the department can be found on our website as well as the website for the DRRC. Further inquiries about the position can be directed to [email protected].
For full consideration, please submit application materials by Tuesday, January 31, 2017. You will be asked to submit (1) a current CV and (2) a research statement that makes clear how your work is relevant to conflict or coordination, and (3) up to two publications or manuscripts. You will also be asked to provide the name and contact information for 2-3 people who will submit recommendation letters on your behalf.
