Dr. In-Sue Oh (PhD, Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa) is Professor in the Department of Human Resource Management at the Fox School of Business, Temple University. Before joining Temple University, he was a faculty member at the University of Alberta and Virginia Commonwealth University.

His research and teaching interests include personnel selection constructs (e.g., personality, cognitive ability) and methods (meta-analysis, employment interviews), strategic human resource management and human capital resources, and person-organization relationships (e.g., person-organization fit, support). Dr. Oh has published over 20 scholarly articles in top tier journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. He has received multiple scholarly awards including the two most prestigious early career contributions awards in his field of research: the 2014 Early Career Achievement Award from the Academy of Management’s HR Division and the 2016 Distinguished Early Career Contributions Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). He currently serves on the editorial review boards of the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, and Journal of Organizational Behavior and as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology.

He would welcome collaborations with doctoral students on projects related to personnel selection procedures (e.g., employment interviews, personality), leadership development, person-environment fit, and meta-analysis methods.
