Post-Doc I/O Psychology


We recently secured a grant for a 2-3 year research project called ‘Enabling sustainable volunteering’. To run this project we are now seeking a Research Fellow with a track record of academic excellence and a passion for applied social and organisational research. If you have an understanding of recruitment, person-organisation fit, engagement, and diversity research, with a range of research methods, and with a strong statistical background we would like to strongly encourage you to apply, though these areas of expertise are not essential. You will, under limited direction, be responsible for helping to design, execute, and disseminate high-quality research on the topic of volunteer attraction, placement, retention and engagement. Additionally, you will be the prime contact for research partners (emergency services organisations) and thus require strong interpersonal skills and experience in client/partner relationship management.

Details of the position are available in the link below:

The goal of the project is to conduct research with emergency services organisations in Australia that assists them in improving their volunteer management practices. You will have the opportunity to work with scholars who are experts in their respective fields and with large professional volunteering organisations. We think that this position presents an excellent opportunity for a starting scholar to improve their academic and client management skills and extend their network. You will be part of a highly skilled research team with various specialisations within Industrial and Organisational (I/O)Psychology and Organisational Behaviour (the project is led by Drs Patrick Dunlop, Alex Luksyte, Djurre Holtrop, and Professor Marylène Gagné). Moreover, you will be connected to the Organisational Behaviour (OB) group, which spans the School of Psychology and the UWA Business School. The OB group has world-class scholars (e.g., Sharon Parker, Mark Griffin, Marylene Gagne, Gillian Yeo, and Cristina Gibson) and offers an outstanding environment in which to shape and develop a research career.
