Bowling Green State University's industrial and organizational psychology program reaped some top honors at the annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology in San Diego.
Dr. Michael Zickar, who is nationally known for his research in personality assessment, was elected a Fellow and two 2005 graduates of the program were recognized with Distinguished Early Career Contributions Awards.
"SIOP Fellows have distinguished themselves by their outstanding contributions to our field," Dr. Adrienne Collella, president of the 8,000 member organization, said. "It is a significant honor granted only to a small percentage of industrial-organizational psychologists."
SIOP was established in 1982 and its members are dedicated to studying and applying scientific principles concerning workplace productivity, motivation, leadership and engagement. SIOP's mission is to enhance human well-being and performance in organizational and work settings by promoting the science, practice and teaching of I-O psychology.
In addition to Zickar's recognition, two graduates of Bowling Green's doctoral program in I-O psychology were recipients of SIOP's Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award.
Jennifer L. Geimer, senior staff scientist at Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) in Alexandria, VA, and Mo Wang, an associate professor of psychology at the University of Florida were recognized for their rapid rise in their careers since graduating from Bowling Green in 2005.
At HumRRO, Geimer is an authority on job analysis and personnel selection practices and has worked with several federal government agencies as well as private organizations.
Wang has produced an impressive record of scholarly publications and is known for his research in adjustment processes in older worker employment and retirement, expatriate management and work-related stress coping.
Zickar, who earned his doctorate at the University of Illinois, joined the Bowling Green psychology faculty in 1996 and is the current department chair.
His work on personality measurement, which has been published in several respected journals, has been influential on the research of others interested in personality assessment in general and the issue of test faking in particular.
