Julia Bear is currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology where she is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and a Marie Curie Fellowship. She received her PhD in Organizational Behavior from Carnegie Mellon University, her MBA from Baruch College-CUNY, and her AB from Stanford University.
Dr. Bear’s research focuses on the influence of gender on negotiation outcomes, and conflict management in organizations. She investigates the ways in which a negotiator’s gender interacts with other aspects of the context, particularly the topic being negotiated, to influence the likelihood of initiating negotiation and performance in negotiation. She also investigates how people manage conflict in organizations, especially in terms of the emotions engendered by conflict. She uses multiple research methods, including experimental studies, surveys in organizations, and qualitative interviews. Dr. Bear’s research has been published in journals and books, including Psychological Science, Negotiation and Conflict Management Research, and the Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings. She has presented her research at conferences worldwide, including as an invited speaker at the 2011 European Gender Summit in Brussels, and at companies, including Microsoft and SAP. She is the recipient of the Best Published Paper Award from Negotiation and Conflict Management Research and the Outstanding Dissertation Award (Honorable Mention) from the International Association for Conflict Management.
