Research Interests:

​Amina Malik is an Assistant Professor of Business at Trent University in Oshawa, Canada. She holds a PhD in HRM from York University, and an MBA from Ryerson University.

In June, 2017, her doctoral research was awarded the Best PhD Dissertation Award from the Human Resource Research Institute (HRRI). The HRRI is founded by Human Resource Professional Association (HRPA), which is the most prestigious and largest HR association in Canada and regulates the professional HR practice of its more than 24,000 members across 28 chapters in Ontario. Her doctoral research focused on employees’ perceptions about talent management programs. More specifically, her research explored the darker side of talent management, and explained how some of the negative effects of talent management programs on employees who are excluded from these programs could be mitigated. Her other research interests include cultural minorities’ socialization in the workplace, perceptions of organizational trust and justice, strategic human resource management, and other emerging issues in human resources management.

Dr. Malik has presented her research papers at numerous national and international academic conferences on topics related to Human Resource Management. She is also the recipient of Administrative Sciences Association of Canada-Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences (ASAC-CJAS) PhD Research Grant Award 2015. One of her research papers received ‘Honourable Mention’ Award at the Association of Administrative Sciences Canada conference 2014, and another paper was nominated for Gustavson School Award for the best qualitative paper in the International Management Division at the AoM conference 2014. Her research has been published in journals such as Human Resource Management Review, Human Resource Management, Career Development International, International Journal of Cross Cultural Management, and European Business Review, among others.
