Personal profile



Marc van Veldhoven (1963) studied psychology at Tilburg University. He graduated (cum laude) in clinical and health psychology in 1987 and worked as a research assistant in this department for four years. He finished his Ph.D. while working in practice. It was titled "Psychosocial workload and job stress" (1996, Groningen University). His Ph. D. supervisors were Prof. Theo Meijman and Prof. Tom Snijders.


From 1988-1997 Marc van Veldhoven worked as a psychologist/researcher for the Occupational Health Service (OHS) of West-Brabant, one of the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. In 1994, together with Prof. Dr. Theo Meijman, he published the questionnaire on the experience and evaluation of work (the VBBA-Questionnaire), developed during a project for the Dutch Institute for the Working Environment (NIA). During 1997-2002 he worked as an independent consultant for several large organizations and branches of industry in the Netherlands, combining this with working as a senior researcher at Nijmegen University (department of work and organizational psychology) and at the Dutch foundation for Quality Improvement in Occupational Health (SKB/Amsterdam). He came to Tilburg University to work with the department of HR Studies in 2002, where he is currently employed as full professor.
