Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at Kellogg School of Management

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.
