The School of Labor and Employment Relations at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for the position of Post-Doctoral Scholar with the Center for International Human Resource Studies. This is a ten month position which begins on August 14, 2015. The Center for International Human Resource Studies (CIHRS) has the goal of encouraging international human resource management (IHRM) scholarly research, and serving the International HR practitioner community. Through targeted events, CIHRS’ goal is to develop a strong community of academics and practitioners passionate about IHRM, enabling the sharing of ideas to advance knowledge and practice in the field.
For the 2015-2016 Post-Doctoral Scholar position, CIHRS is particularly interested in candidates with research and teaching interests in the broad field of international human resource management, preferably spanning both comparative HRM and the HRM-related activities of multinational corporations. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. earned in the last three years. The degree should be in a relevant discipline and applicants should show evidence of an emerging research program relevant to CIHRS’ interests.
Scholars will receive salary, benefits, and a research/travel fund to support their work. Postdoctoral candidates will be expected to teach one course each semester related to IHRM topics. Teaching obligations could include a course in one of the School’s residential or online programs. Other anticipated duties include involvement with on-going research studies, developing research funding proposals for CIHRS, and coordinating the CIHRS webpage and newsletter. The person appointed will also be expected to participate actively in the broader School’s activities.
The School of Labor and Employment Relations is a multidisciplinary department with a large undergraduate program, a strong residential Masters of Science in Human Resources and Employment Relations (HRER), and a fully-online Masters of Professional Studies in HRER.
