Robb Rutledge is a recipient of the 2018 APS Janet Taylor Spence Award for Transformative Early Career Contributions.

The Association of Psychological Science (APS) Board of Directors established this award to recognize new and cutting edge research coming from the most creative and promising investigators in the field of psychological science.

This award is a tribute to its namesake, Janet Taylor Spence, the first elected APS President. Spence’s career embodies transformative contributions to psychological science. She developed new approaches to research and pioneering tools including the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale and the Attitudes Toward Women Scale and she epitomized the spirit of crossing disciplinary boundaries with work on topics ranging from schizophrenia to developmental psychology to gender bias.

Robb Rutledge and the other 2018 Janet Taylor Spence Award recipients will accept their award at the 30th Annual APS Convention in San Francisco.
