SIOPs First Annual Junior Faculty Consortium
Thursday, May 4, 2006

Wendy Becker
University at Albany

The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology will present the First Annual Junior Faculty Consortium on Thursday, May 4, 2006 at the Adams Mark Hotel in Dallas. The consortium is intended to provide a forum for discussion of topics of mutual interest to junior faculty, especially related to the tenure process and starting and maintaining an independent stream of research. Panel sessions will encourage lively discussion; the half-day schedule will allow time for informal interaction among participants.

Our vision for this new session is to create a social network for junior industrial and organizational psychologists in academic settings during the early career years. The consortium is designed for pre-tenure faculty. Faculty from psychology departments, business schools, research, and teaching institutions are invited to attend. 

We are assembling a group of renowned academicians who will discuss issues of interest to junior faculty. This years speakers include:

  • Rich Arvey
  •  Frank Landy
  • Jose Cortina
  •  Ann Marie Ryan
  • Fritz Drasgow
  •  Neal Schmitt
  • Jim Farr
  •  Shelly Zedeck
  • Milt Hakel
  •  Many more to be confirmed!
  • Rich Klimoski

The program agenda includes an editorial panel with discussion of the publication process. Sessions also include Managing Your Career, Getting Tenure and Creating a Research Stream, Mentoring Graduate Students, and Obtaining Research Funding. The editors panel will kick off the consortium at noon; a buffet lunch will be served from 1:302:30 p.m. The program ends at approximately 5:45, to be followed by group reservations for dinner.
