I'm pleased to share that the Harvard Business School's Institute for the Study of Business in Global Society (BiGS) is currently accepting applications for the 2024-2025 cohort of BiGS Fellows. The application deadline is October 1, 2023.
The BiGS Fellowship is a fully-funded program designed to bring faculty of any rank from other universities to HBS for the 2024-2025 academic year to work on research related to issues of business and society. For this cohort, BiGS is looking to bring to campus two small groups of scholars: one whose work focuses on the role of business in addressing climate change and environmental sustainability, and another whose work examines racial inequities in the business sector, and emerging best practices for combatting or addressing them.
BiGS Fellows are expected to be in residence at HBS's campus in Boston for one full academic year. BiGS Fellows will have their own research agendas but will also be expected to contribute to HBS and the broader Harvard community. In most cases, this contribution will take the form of working closely with at least one HBS faculty member to develop a new scholarly working paper, managerial article, or educational material (such as a case or technical note) or by co-teaching one or more sessions of an existing course. Each Fellow will have a dedicated HBS faculty host who will help integrate them into the community and ensure they make a lasting impact. They will have office space and administrative support during their time on campus. HBS will reimburse the Fellow's home institution for the cost of their salary and benefits.
Please consider applying and forwarding this opportunity to promising candidates.
