Research is not a required part of the job and will not factor into performance evaluations; however, opportunities for research collaboration are available if the candidate desires.

    Required Qualifications:

    We are looking for individuals with a Ph.D. in IO psychology (or a related field such as organizational behavior, human resources, or management); and evidence of, or potential for, excellence at teaching/mentoring, particularly online and particularly at the graduate level. Candidates who will have a Ph.D. conferred before the start of Fall 2019 classes will be considered eligible for this posting.

    Preferred Qualifications:

    Candidates should have broad teaching interests, with the capacity to teach a range of IO and entry-level graduate applied quantitative courses.

    Mason’s IO Psychology Program has a tradition of excellence in research and teaching. There are currently seven IO faculty members with a wide range of research and teaching interests. In addition, the IO Program has a tradition of professional service to the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), with four SIOP Presidents affiliated with the program. The faculty moreover are engaged in the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science, the Academy of Management, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology.

    For full consideration, applicants must apply for position number F377Az at; complete and submit the online application; and upload a cover letter, a teaching statement (including teaching philosophy, a summary of previous teaching evaluations, and any other evidence of teaching accomplishments or potential), and a CV. In addition, three letters of reference should be submitted either e-mailed to, or sent via USPS mail to Ms. Susan Ridley, IO Search Coordinator, George Mason University, MS 3F5, Fairfax, VA 22030-4444. Letters of reference should emphasize the candidate’s teaching/mentoring accomplishments or potential, particularly online and particularly at the graduate level.

    The search committee will begin reviewing applications on December 13, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. The IO program at George Mason has a commitment to both academic excellence and diversity; accordingly, women, members of underrepresented groups, and international candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.
