This is a university-year appointment. Application deadline is October 15, 2017. Excellence in research and teaching is essential. We seek scholars who bring a psychological perspective to the study of organizations and organizational behavior in both their research and teaching. The area of research is open, and candidates may include psychologists whose work has direct or indirect implications for organizational behavior. Examples topics include attitudes, culture, decision-making, diversity, emotion, morality and ethical behavior, motivation, trust, interpersonal relationships, group processes, or other research areas relevant to organizations and organizational behavior. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. The University is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.

Applications must include cover letter, CV, statement of current and future research plans, writing sample(s), statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and evidence of teaching excellence (evaluations) and syllabi (if available). The University of Michigan, the Department of Psychology and the Organizational Studies Program value contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage applicants to comment (in a separate statement or in the cover letter) about how their research, teaching, and/or service in the past, present, and/or future could contribute to these values. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the application website. Names for recommendation letters can be entered into the system in advance of submitting your full application. It is recommended to get these names in the system as early as possible to allow your letter writers plenty of time to submit the letters. The system will stop accepting letters on October 25th.
