Mark de Rond, faculty member at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, has been awarded one of the two Fulbright Distinguished Scholar Awards for 2007/08.

His nomination was supported by his current research into high-performance teams. This research was based on seven months observation of the Cambridge rowing crew as they prepared for the 2007 boat race which is a famous annual rowing competition between Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

The award of £15,000 enables the recipient to spend a period of time researching or lecturing in the US. Mr de Rond said: ‘It will enable me to undertake a sabbatical at Stanford University next year where I will be collaborating with Professors James March and Robert Burgelman on new research relating to causation and causal explanation in the organisation sciences.’
