The Department of Psychology at Portland State University has two, tenure-track positions in Industrial/Organizational Psychology with a September 16, 2023 start date. We expect to hire one individual at the assistant professor level and one individual at the associate professor level. Spouses are welcome to apply. Individuals who have proposed, but not defended their dissertations will be considered but must be awarded their degrees by September 15, 2023.

Qualifications include a doctoral degree in I/O psychology or a related area. We are particularly interested in candidates whose scholarly agendas would contribute to our areas of expertise in Occupational Health Psychology and Diversity/Inclusion and who would be willing and able to teach graduate level courses in Industrial Psychology, Training, Selection, and/or Organizational Psychology.

Candidates appropriate for this position will have an established publication record in I/O psychology or evidence of the potential to develop such a record. Responsibilities include maintaining a productive program of community-based research; teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in I/O and other core departmental courses; supervising student theses and dissertations; applying for internal and external funding to support research activities; and contributing in service to the department, university, and profession.

Our current I/O faculty are energetic scholars with strong publication records and active engagement in SIOP, SOHP, and journal editorial boards. We very much value collaborations between faculty and graduate students within our program, with many students being co-advised by several faculty or working across labs. We strive to maintain a collegial and inclusive climate, in support of positive experiences for our faculty and graduate students of all backgrounds. Our doctoral program was recently ranked first in student satisfaction.

The Department has a strong applied research orientation and a doctoral program in Applied Psychology with specializations in Industrial/Organizational, Applied Developmental, Applied Social, Applied Community, and Applied Quantitative Psychology. Since 2003, the department has also housed an Occupational Health Psychology - Total Worker Health training program for graduate students, funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health/CDC. Our efforts align with the University’s Social Determinants of Health Initiative

The Psychology Department supports an inclusive and vibrant intellectual environment in which human diversity is recognized and valued. In keeping with this commitment, we particularly encourage applications from candidates from diverse/historically underrepresented groups and candidates whose research, teaching, and outreach address the role of cultural, racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, or gender identities and contexts; processes of discrimination, bias, or stereotyping; and interventions, policies, and strategies to advance social justice.

Notably, our Department is also fully committed to research that engages local community and business organizations to solve social problems. As such, successful candidates will have a demonstrated history of research with organizational partners or a concerted desire to conduct community-engaged research in the near future. We maintain a supportive climate of cooperation, collaboration, and collegiality.
