Julia Bear joined the College of Business of Stony Brook University as an Assistant Professor in September 2013. Dr. Bear’s research focuses on the influence of gender on negotiation outcomes, as well as emotions and conflict management in organizations. In her research, she investigates what factors, both individual and situational, influence the gender gap typically seen in negotiation outcomes, and how an understanding of these factors can help to reduce this gender gap in both initiation of negotiation and negotiation performance. She uses a variety of research methods, including experimental studies, surveys in organizations, and qualitative interviews. Prior to coming to Stony Brook, she was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, where she was the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and a Marie Curie Fellowship.
Dr. Bear’s research has been published in journals and books, including Psychological Science, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Negotiation and Conflict Management Research, and the Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings. Dr. Bear is also the recipient of multiple best paper awards from the Academy of Management and the International Association of Conflict Management.
Dr. Bear received her PhD in Organizational Behavior from Carnegie Mellon University, her MBA from Baruch College-CUNY, and her AB from Stanford University.
