Spring 2010

By :

Carlson School Assistant Professor Vladas Griskevicius of the Department of Marketing and Logistics Management has been awarded one of 10 prestigious McKnight Land-Grant Professorships by the University of Minnesota. This award is granted to the University’s most promising junior faculty members.   

        “The McKnight Professorship is the most competitive and distinguished early-career award given at the University to faculty members whose work shows early promise of path-breaking discovery,” says Sri Zaheer, Carlson School associate dean for faculty and research and Elmer L. Andersen Chair in Global Corporate Social Responsibility. “Vladas’ work puts him in a very select group of University faculty.”

        Griskevicius’ research on the evolutionary roots of human behavior has been widely published and has appeared in top academic journals in psychology and marketing. His teaching and research uses theoretical principles from evolutionary biology to study consumers’ often-unconscious preferences, decision processes, and behavioral strategies.

        The McKnight Land-Grant Professorship is a two-year appointment that includes a grant for research and scholarly activities, along with a paid research leave during the second year.
