International Business and Strategy are pleased to announce the John H. Dunning Visiting Fellows for the 2015/16 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School, University of Reading. 

The new fellows are:

  • Jenny Hillemann

A postdoctoral fellow at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel from which she received a Ph.D. in Business Economics in December 2014, her research includes the managerial analysis of multinational enterprise strategy and the broader governance challenges facing international firms.

  • Ajai Gaur

Associate Professor of International Business at Rutgers Business School, he received a Ph.D. in Business Policy and Strategy from the National University of Singapore. In his research, Dr. Gaur studies the distinct institutional influences on firms' international expansion strategies in different institutional contexts. A related focus of his research is to study institutional influences on various firm-level governance mechanisms and their strategic and performance consequences

Applications were received from a variety of applicants across the world and reviewed by a panel consisting of Professor Rajneesh Narula, Professor James Walker and Professor Mark Casson.

The visiting fellowship programme is aimed at creating opportunities for researchers at the early-to-mid stages of their career to visit and collaborate with academics at the Centre, and to utilise resources associated with the John H. Dunning Library.  Dunning Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in the field of international business (broadly defined), and with an inclination towards multi-disciplinary and theory-driven research, in the tradition of John Dunning.  Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year.
