Two Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions in Industrial-Organizational Psychology

Department of Psychological Sciences

College of Health and Human Sciences

Purdue University

The Department of Psychological Sciences at Purdue University invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology beginning in the Fall of 2018. The positions are at the Assistant Professor rank, and both current Assistant Professors and those currently completing their PhD are encouraged to apply.

The positions are intended to reinforce two strong emphases of the Purdue I-O program: justice in the workplace (broadly defined, e.g., workplace fairness, well-being, occupational health, diversity, person-centric perspectives, corporate social responsibility, cross-cultural issues, work-life balance), and advanced quantitative methods (broadly defined, e.g., multilevel approaches, structural equation modeling, intensive longitudinal data analysis. Successful candidates would have the opportunity to participate in the department’s graduate certification program in advanced psychological statistics and methodologies.). Applicants with expertise in other areas also are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates should have or be working toward a Ph.D. in I-O Psychology, OBHR, or a related field; and have a strong publication record, a research program with likelihood of external funding, and a record of teaching and mentoring excellence. Responsibilities will include maintaining a productive research program, directing graduate student research, and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses.

Purdue’s I-O Psychology Program is among the oldest in the world, conferring its first degree in 1939. The program has graduated more PhDs, and produced more SIOP Fellows than any other I-O program, and is among the top ranked programs ( The current I-O faculty have a wide range of research interests, many of which center around the psychological experiences of people at work, fairness and well-being, and advanced quantitative and/or data-intensive approaches to these topics. The program attracts top graduate students from around the world, and has significant collaborations with the OBHR program in Purdue’s Krannert School of Management. It also works closely with other areas within the Department of Psychological Sciences (Behavioral Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Mathematical and Computational Cognitive Science, and Social Psychology).

 Application review will begin October 1, 2017, but applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Please send in PDF format a cover letter specifying relevant expertise the application addresses, a curriculum vita, up to four papers, and research and teaching statements via email to In addition, please arrange to have at least three letters of reference forwarded to the same email address.
