The Postdoctoral Fellow will be provided with a salary and a personal research budget. In addition, the Postdoctoral Fellow will have the opportunity to interact with the broader Faculty at INSEAD and participate in all the Organizational Behavioral Area and school-wide research events such as the brown bag series, research seminars, and conferences.
