SHRLR's Jason Huang Promoted with Tenure

Congratulations to Dr. Huang for his promotion to Associate Professor with the School of Human Resources and Labor Relations at Michigan State University.

Dr. Jason Huang received his PhD in Organizational Psychology from Michigan State University in 2012. Prior to joining our School in 2015, Dr. Huang served as an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Wayne State University. Dr. Huang's substantive research focuses on two themes: (a) personality and adaptability at work – how stable traits and dynamic processes enable individuals to adapt to various work situations; and (b) training and transfer – what factors facilitate individuals' skill acquisition and subsequent applications. His research has generally yielded practical implications for employee selection and training. In addition. Dr. Huang has developed a stream of research on insufficient effort responding, devising methods to deter and detect careless responding to employee surveys.

Dr. Huang's research has appeared in top tier journals such as Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Psychological Bulletin, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Management, and Journal of Organizational Behavior. Dr. Huang has been the recipient of the William A. Owens Scholarly Achievement Award by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
