We search for the lepton-flavor-violating decay of the J/psi into an electron and a muon using (225.3 +/- 2.8) x 10(6) J/psi events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII. Four candidate events are found in the signal region, consistent with background expectations. An upper limit on the branching fraction of B(J/psi -> e mu) < 1.6 x 10(-7) (90% C.L.) is obtained.
