2013 Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award - Science

Russell E. Johnson, Michigan State University

In the 6 years since earning his doctorate from the University of Akron, Dr. Johnson has compiled an impressive record of research activity and scholarly publications. He has 51 peer-reviewed journal articles, many in top-tier publications. His research has mostly focused on employee identity, implicit information processing, and core self-evaluation. His contributions in each of these areas have advanced the literature and have significantly improved the science of I-O psychology. In his work on employee identity, he was among the first to demonstrate the differential effects of collective, relational, and individual identities. His research on implicit information processing is particularly influential because it articulates and highlights the subconscious affective and cognitive mechanisms through which goals and interpersonal treatment influence subsequent behavior. In core self-evaluation, he has investigated theoretical and methodological issues surrounding the construct, which have shaped how the field studies this construct. Contributing to science also involves mentoring and training graduate students, an area where Dr. Johnson has excelled. More than half of his articles have included student coauthors, and he has chaired over a dozen dissertation and thesis committees. He has also played an active role in the I-O psychology community, chairing and participating on several SIOP committees and serving on the editorial boards of 12 journals.
