I examine a unique facet of Japan’s public education system: jinji idou, a mandatory teacher rotation system governed by the prefectural board of education where teachers are systematically transferred to other schools throughout their careers to appropriately staff schools, facilitate varied career paths, and identify future leaders for administra...
Article
Resource Mobilization Theory (RMT) posits that the key to social movement organizations’ (SMOs’) success is their ability to mobilize resources. Yet there has been little research verifying this claim. This study uses the case of post-Soviet rural Lithuania to test the link between human, social, material, and organizational resources of SMOs and t...
Article
We use data from 2008–2013 on the universe of internal promotion opportunities in the labor market of NCAA Division I men's college basketball coaching to examine how race and racial homophily affect the likelihood of internal promotion. We run probit regression analyses from the individual and organizational perspective, offering a robust test of...

Article
Public teachers in Japan are subjected to a compulsory rotation system where the prefectural board of education governs their entire career paths. Past research has written of the macro- and micro-level impacts of rotation systems, including Japanese teacher rotation, but this paper, based on years of working in and observing Japanese schools, is t...
Article
We examine how race affects the employment status of subordinates following a job change by their immediate supervisors. We test whether racial homophily between a subordinate and a supervisor affects the odds of being let go. We also consider whether a racial match between an incoming head coach and assistant affects whether assistants retain thei...
Article
Cyber attacks continue to increase in frequency and variety, making cyber malfeasance a rising area of study and a major policy issue. Categorizing cyber attackers aids targeted organizations in efficiently directing resources to enhance security. However, extant hacker typologies do not fully account for the multifaceted nature of cyber malfeasanc...
Article
We examine how career paths, job performance, affiliation ties, and race combine to affect who secures top jobs in an elite labor market. Using Qualitative Comparative Analysis, we show that examining these traits in conjunction, rather than in isolation, reveals novel insights into how one reaches the top of an occupation. Specifically, we documen...
Article
We examine how an assistant coach's race and the race of his supervisor (the head coach) interact to affect future job quality. While past research argues that homophily is beneficial to job mobility, we find differential effects based on the race. OLS and OLR regression analyses on the quality of one's first head coaching job in NCAA men's basketb...
Article
To explore the relationship between Internet use and social tolerance in Japan, I draw on the contact hypothesis, which argues of the positive effects of exposure to diverse others on intergroup tolerance. Logistic regression results of the 2003 Japanese General Social Survey data show that Internet use is positively associated with both attitudina...

... Black coaching candidates face a harder job market than their white counterparts (Madden 2004;Madden & Ruther 2009, Seebruck 2015. Scholars of the Sociology of Sport document the many mechanisms operating in professional and collegiate sports that present Black coaching candidates with barriers to promotions , Seebruck & Savage 2019) and appointments (Savage & Seebruck 2015). While Black individuals do land top jobs in coaching, they are required to have more impressive career histories than White candidates (Savage & Seebruck 2015). ...
... Second, one way to capture unobserved traits such as teacher quality is to capture them with another concept-in this case, full-time teacher status. This is particularly true in the Japanese prefecture studied here where becoming a full-time teacher requires passing a test and an interview for a limited number of slots (Seebruck, 2019). The thought is that the administrators know a great deal about the teachers they hire and make hiring decisions based on their judgments of those teachers. ...
... While research on race and the sociology of sport has focused on the racial characteristics and expectations of players for on-field penalization (Hall and Livinngston 2012;Eiserloh et al. 2020), much less is known racialized leadership positions such as coaching. When studies do consider racial leadership, the emphasis is typically on the effects of race on hiring and promotion, rather than on-field dynamics Day 2015;Seebruck and Savage 2014Savage and Seebruck 2016). This article extends previous work by exploring the relationship between the racial characteristics of college football coaches and their team's level of on-field penalization. ...
... Cybercriminals or offenders are individuals who use computers to attack other people's computer systems, networks, IoT devices, and data (e.g., personally identifiable data, health data, or research data). Similar to criminals in the physical world, cybercriminals' motivations to engage in online crimes may include prestige, recreation, ideology, revenge, and profit (Georgia State University, 2021; Seebruck, 2015). Their skill levels vary from very low to very high. ...
