Biography

Ulrich Jensen is an assistant professor in the School of Public Affairs and a faculty affiliate at the Center for Organizational Research and Design at Arizona State University. He joined ASU in 2016 from Aarhus University in Denmark where he received his doctorate from the Department of Political Science.

Jensen specializes in public management and organization behavior. His research interests span issues of leadership, motivation, values and performance in public service. His recent contributions focus on the behavioral implications of prosocial motivation and are published in top-tier field journals such as Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Administration Review and Social Science & Medicine. Together with colleagues, Jensen recently published a new measurement instrument for transformational and transactional leadership in Administration & Society.

His research builds on new and innovative ways to understand the importance of leadership in shaping the attitudes of public service providers and the performance of their organizations. Examples include combining survey and register data, collecting repeated measures at multiple points in time, and conducting a large-scale field experiment with public and private managers. His current work uses these approaches to examine which strategies make leaders most effective in motivating their employees and conveying values in their organizations.

His research is regularly presented at the Public Management Research Association Conference, Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management Conference, International Research Society for Public Management Conference, and was recently recognized among some of the best offered by young scholars at the 2016 European Group for Public Administration Conference.
