Before joining Temple University, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Strategic Management and Organization at the University of Alberta and in the Department of Management at Virginia Commonwealth University.

His research and teaching interests include personnel selection constructs (e.g., personality) and methods (meta-analysis, validity generalization), human capital resources, leadership development, and person-organization relationships (e.g., fit, support). Dr. Oh has published many scholarly articles in various journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Vocational Behavior, and Journal of Organizational Behavior. He has received multiple scholarly awards including the Early Career Achievement Award from the Academy of Management’s HR Division, the Joyce and Robert Hogan Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology Foundation, the James C.

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.
