Postdoctoral Fellowship in Organizational Behavior

The Organizational Behavior area at Stanford Graduate School of Business invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position. The primary criterion for acceptance is research excellence relevant to organizational behavior, broadly defined. The position requires someone with a strong background in psychological, organizational, and/or behavioral research methods.

The position is slated to start in August or September of 2022 and is renewable for a second year. Salary is competitive, and the position will receive a research budget and opportunities to collaborate on projects of mutual interest with faculty.

Applicants must have completed a PhD in a social science discipline related to micro organizational behavior (e.g., organizational behavior, psychology) or in a related discipline that can inform research in this field (e.g., a “big data” discipline) prior to the beginning of the fellowship; further, they should have a record of being an outstanding scholar. The fellow is expected to conduct original research with at least two faculty members in the OB area. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to identify multiple faculty members with whom they would be interested in collaborating. The fellow is expected to become actively involved in the OB intellectual community by participating in colloquia, workshops, and research seminars. The fellow is also welcome to audit PhD courses, should they wish.

For full consideration, submit application materials by January 15, 2022. You will be asked to submit:

  • A cover letter identifying at least two faculty members with whom you would be interested in collaborating with
  • A current CV
  • A research statement that makes clear how your work is relevant to the OB area
  • Up to two publications or manuscripts
  • Arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted
