    The OBHR Area is home to faculty and research centers conducting leading research in Organizational Behavior, Organizational Theory, and Human Resource Management. Members of our faculty include Richard Burgess, Gary Florkowski, Carrie Leana, David Lebel, Audrey Murrell, Frits Pil, and Trevor Young-Hyman. Our faculty serve in editorial positions and on the editorial boards of leading journals and hold leadership positions within the Academy of Management. We have diverse methodological expertise in field research, survey research, experimental methods, and qualitative interview-based and ethnographic methods. Our faculty lead several research centers including the Center for Healthcare Management and the Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership.. Doctoral students have opportunities to access additional research support and funding through these centers as well as the Pitt Dean's Seed Grant Awards and the University of Pittsburgh Office of Research Awards.
