Nina Mareen Junker
I’m a work and organizational psychologist with a social psych touch and two hearts beating in my chest. First, I’m a work-nonwork researcher with a passion on successfully managing the boundaries between work and nonwork and how to make that happen – What can individuals do? What can organizations do? When and how do we transfer (positive or negative) experiences from one role to another? When and why do our work and nonwork roles clash? Second, I’m an enthusiast in team processes and, particularly, in team identification. Here, I’m most interested in the contingency factors that help team identification boost health and performance, such as team norms. To answer my research questions, I employ a broad range of research designs, including laboratory and online experiments, longitudinal (multi-level) studies, diary studies, and, most recently, qualitative methodologies.
I currently teach Personnel Psychology on the undergraduate and graduate levels. I previously taught social psychology at the undergraduate level and organizational psychology at the graduate and MBA level. My courses cover topics from a broad variety within these fields and use a variety of teaching possibilities, including elearning.
Prior to my employment as Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, I held a position as Assistant Professor and Deputy Head of Department in Social Psychology at Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany), where I also did my Ph.D.. I had research and teaching stays at Portsmouth Business School (UK), TU Eindhoven (the Netherlands), Trento University (Italy), and OsloMet – Oslometropolitan University (Norway). During my Ph.D., I held part-time and full-time positions as a consultant, product manager, and head of product management in the fields of corporate health management and eHealth. These positions served as inspiration for my research topics in many regards.
