Job Details

The Leonard N. Stern School of Business invites talented scholars of color and others underrepresented in business scholarship to participate in our Diverse Pathways in Academia program. The program’s goal is to share information with doctoral students from groups that are underrepresented among business school faculty about academic careers within business schools.

The program is geared toward scholars in either their penultimate doctoral year or the year prior from the fields of psychology and sociology whose work can be applied to a business field. We hope to increase the pool of scholars from underrepresented groups that are competitive candidates for open faculty and research positions at top tier business schools.

Many of NYU Stern’s faculty members hold doctorates in fields such as psychology, sociology, statistics, mathematics, computer science and other non-business subjects. They have found a stimulating and satisfying academic community at Stern. This reflects the wide range of opportunities at business schools for individuals with doctorates in other fields. For instance, many psychology and sociology scholars investigate topics of great relevance and importance to management research and practice such as identity, emotions, groups, diversity, person perception, and a wide range of other topics. Similarly, many cognitive psychology and social psychology scholars investigate topics on judgment and decision-making, for example, that are highly relevant to the field of marketing, which includes the study of consumer behavior and decision-making.

The program will take place in person, on Stern's New York City campus, on January 19 and 20, 2022, all expenses paid. It will include presentations and panels by faculty members and administrators, along with networking opportunities. Program participants will have the opportunity to engage with Stern’s deans, professors, and administrators to:

  • Learn how their fields of study can be applied to business scholarship
  • Learn about the scholarly career of the business school faculty
  • Learn best practices to prepare for the business school faculty recruitment, application, interview and selection process
  • Learn best practices for cultivating job prospects, how to negotiate job offers, and how to decide whether a position is right for you
  • Learn about NYU Stern post-doc and faculty positions
  • Network formally and informally with Stern faculty and graduate students working in areas related to program participants’ respective fields of study. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their current and future research interests with faculty mentors and will receive guidance on the potential fit between their interests and business school environments
  • Join Stern’s DPA 2020 alumni and those from NYU’s similar programs for follow-up programming and support.

Scholars participate in the initiative at no cost.


Eligible participants include:

  • Current doctoral students in their penultimate year, or one year earlier, who are on track to complete their dissertation by August, 2024 or 2025 in basic social science disciplines such as psychology and sociology.
  • Students from historically underrepresented groups who are preparing for academic careers in fields represented among Stern’s faculty, especially psychology and sociology.
  • Historically underrepresented groups include primarily students of African American, Hispanic/Latinx and Latin American, American Indian, or Alaskan Native descent, and others who are underrepresented and underserved in business schools.
  • Eligible candidates must commit to attend the full event including arrival on Wednesday, January 18, and the event January 19 and 20, 2023
