Dr. Lillian Eby, Professor of Psychology, is an Industrial-Organizational Psychologist at the University of Georgia. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Academy of Management. Her research interests center on relationships at work, factors that predict individual career success, worker well-being, and the intersection of work and family life. She has had extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health for the last decade and has published over 125 peer-reviewed journal articles and this work appears in scholarly outlets such as the Journal of Applied PsychologyPersonnel PsychologyJournal of Vocational BehaviorOrganizational Behavior and Human Decision ProcessesJournal of Management, among others. Dr. Eby has also co-edited three books, one on mentoring in organizational, educational, and community settings (Allen & Eby, Blackwell Press), one on the effect of relationships on employee attitudes, behavior, and well-being (Eby & Allen, Taylor/Routledge Press), and one on work and family (Allen & Eby, Oxford University Press).

She is former Associate Editor of Personnel Psychology as well as the Journal of Applied Psychology. Currently, she is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Applied Psychology. In addition to her active scholarship, Dr. Eby serves as the Director of the Owens Institute for Behavioral Research, a service unit under the Office for Research that promotes and supports interdisciplinary social and behavioral science at UGA.


The National Institutes of Health invests over $40 billion annually in research aimed at protecting and enhancing health, reducing illness and disability, and improving health system delivery. Although these topics are relevant to our science, I-O psychologists and management scholars are not well represented in NIH’s extramural grants portfolio. Drawing from 15 years of grant funding from NIH and service on numerous NIH peer review committees, Dr. Eby will discuss the basics of funding at NIH, including different grant mechanisms, review criteria, and research methods considerations. She will also provide tips for preparing successful grant applications and discuss new NIH funding priorities related to the biomedical workforce, health disparities, and social science research.
