The Operations Management and Quantitative Methods area at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management offers a two‐year post-doctoral fellowship. Postdocs work closely with Owen faculty on research projects, while making progress toward publication of their current scholarly work. To be eligible, candidates must complete their Ph.D. by August prior to starting the fellowship. The candidates with research interests and experience in Supply Chain Management and Retail Operations are especially encouraged to apply. The strongest candidates will be those whose interests align closely with Owen faculty, and where the postdoc 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.

Fellowship Details

Accepted postdocs receive an annual salary plus benefits, as well as an annual allowance for research/conference‐related travel and expenses. In addition, the school will provide a single computer and IT support. During the period of the fellowship, postdocs are expected to be in residence, work with faculty on research projects, and participate in research seminars at the school.
