Georgine Pion

Emeritus Research Associate Professor of Psychology and Human Development

Pion's research has focused on career development and human resource policy, particularly as it pertains to the education, training, and employment of scientists and clinical personnel. In addition to training programs, her work has also involved the conduct of large-scale surveys aimed at evaluating peer review in the neurosciences, identifying the factors that affect satisfaction of NIH applicants for research grants, assessing the supply of and demand for faculty in special education, and trends in the education and employment of psychologists.
