2012 Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award - Science

Adam M. Grant, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

Dr. Grant received his doctorate in 2006 from the University of Michigan and since then has shown every indication of providing a significant impact on the science of I-O psychology during his career. He has published or has in press some 30 refereed articles with more than half in top-ranked journals. His research has won several honors including SIOP’s Owens Scholarly Achievement Award for Best Publication in I-O Psychology in 2009 and the APA Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Applied Psychology this year. He is, or already has been, on seven editorial boards and was recently named an associate editor of the Academy of Management Journal. He has made significant contributions in job design by demonstrating that relational characteristics of jobs shape work motivation, performance, and satisfaction. He is also well known for his research on prosocial motivation, which shows that key work behaviors can be driven by concern for others not only by self-interest.
