Lecturer in Work Psychology
University of Western Australia - School of Psychological Science

About the team

The School of Psychological Science at UWA is ranked 42nd in the 2019 QS World University rankings by subject and the discipline was judged as “well above world standard” [the highest rating of 5] in all four Excellence in Research for Australia assessments, most recently in 2018. Only one other Australian university has achieved this maximum level of performance in Psychology across all four ERA rounds.

Strong links have been developed with the UWA Business School and Energy and Minerals Institute, and with the Schools of Human Sciences and of Engineering & Mathematical Science.

In addition to its accredited Master and combined Master/PhD in IO Psychology, we have recently launched a new Master in Business Psychology.
