About the Job

 

The George Mason University, Industrial and Organizational (IO) Psychology Program invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning fall semester, 2015. The position has been approved at the Assistant Professor-level (either at the new Ph.D. or advanced assistant-level) with possible consideration for more advanced faculty who have a demonstrated track record of research productivity and external funding. 

Job Requirements

 

We are looking for an individual with a Ph.D. in IO psychology (or a related field such as organizational behavior, human resources, management, and/or labor and industrial/employment relations); a strong research record; and evidence of, or potential for, teaching and mentoring excellence. The specific area of research interest is open, although teaching interests in “industrial/personnel” topics or quantitative methods would be a plus. The successful candidate is expected to maintain a highly productive research program, teach undergraduate and graduate courses in IO psychology and/or quantitative methods, and direct graduate students’ research.

Mason’s IO Psychology Program has a tradition of excellence in research and teaching. There are currently six IO faculty members with a wide-range of research interests. Two of our current faculty members have received university awards for excellence in teaching. In addition, the IO Program has a tradition of professional service to the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, with soon-to-be four SIOP Presidents affiliated with the program. The faculty are moreover engaged in the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science and the Academy of Management (e.g., the Gender and Diversity in Organizations, Human Resources, Organizational Behavior, and Research Methods Divisions). The doctoral program has a strong research focus. More information about the Ph.D., M.A., and undergraduate concentration in IO Psychology and the Psychology Department can be obtained at http://psychology.gmu.edu/ and http://www.gmu.edu/org/iopsa/.
