Research Profile

Carol Linehan

Biography

Dr. Carol Linehan is a senior lecturer in the School of Applied Psychology, University College Cork.  Her key interests relate to the application of psychology to the workplace.  She has particular interest in gender at work, emotion work in organisations, and the impacts of organisational flexibility and work practices on employee identities and experiences of work.  
She is currently part of the UCC team involved in RRING, a H2020 project on Responsible Research and Innovation.  See project site at http://www.rring.eu.  Her role in this project, with colleagues in ISS21, is to bring gender expertise to further align the gender equality sustainable development goals with the overall RRI goals of the project.
Previously she was awarded, in conjunction with ISS21 and the UCC equality committee, a Pobal grant to create a gender equality action plan for the university sector.  This project was awarded an extension of funding in 2012, see further details at http://www.ucc.ie/en/iss21/Currentprojects/glassceiling/.  
Leading on from this work Carol was a member of the UCC team that won over 2 million FP7 funding for a multi-site EU project entitled 'Genovate: Transforming organisational culture for gender equality in research and innovation'.  The project began in January 2013 and ran for four years.
Carol holds a Masters in Occupational Psychology and Human Resource Management and a PhD in the area of learning and identity in organisations.  Before joining UCC she worked at the University of Leicester where she contributed to the setup of the MSc in Occupational Psychology and the Diploma in the Psychology of Work. 
Recent engagement with industry include an examination of diversity, inclusion and engagement practices in a leading multi-national company; a review of changing work practices in an area of the health services, and an audit of staff learning and development in a community health initiative.  Carol has also developed and directed a number of academic programmes including the professionally accredited MA in Work and Organisational Psychology and before that the Higher Diploma in Human Resource Management and the MSc in Human Resource Management in collaboration with ACE.

Teaching Interests

Carol has delivered courses at undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education levels.  
Most recent modules taught are listed below.  
Her core teaching interests relate to understanding people and organisations.  A core value is to examine work from a multiple stakeholder perspective.  This addresses not only management issues/concerns but also the consequences of work design and management for a range of stakeholders.  Particular topics include understanding emotion management in the workplace; work-life balance; identity & work; workplace flexibility; home-work boundaries; and gender at work.  

As well as teaching Carol developed, directs, and lead the accreditation bid for the postgraduate programme, MA in Work and Organisational Psychology/Behaviour.  This programme is  professionally accredited by the Division of Work and Organisational Psychology, Psychological Society of Ireland
