Dean's Office/Owen Graduate School of Management

Post docs are expected to work closely with Owen faculty on new research projects, while making progress toward publication of their current work. To be eligible, candidates must complete their Ph.D. by summer 2018. The strongest candidates will be those whose interests align closely with Owen faculty, and where the post‐doc and faculty member can foresee developing joint research projects. We encourage applicants to look in detail at Owen faculty research, and identify faculty with similar interests and ongoing research activity.

The two‐year fellowship will begin in August of 2018. The pay is $50,000 a year, plus benefits as well as an annual allowance of up to $2,500 for research/conference‐related travel and expenses. In addition, the school will provide a single standard computer and computer support. During the period of the fellowship, the fellows are expected to be in residence, work with faculty on research projects, participate in research seminars in the school and teach one 7‐week course each year or otherwise contribute to the teaching and research mission of the school. 

The Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University is dedicated exclusively to graduate management education. It has an enrollment of over 500 full‐time students in its full‐time MBA, Health Care MBA, Executive MBA, Americas MBA for Executives, Master of Science in Finance, Masters of Accountancy, Masters of Marketing, and Masters of Management in Health Care programs.
