Short Biography

Stefan Mol is assistant professor in Organizational Behavior at the Amsterdam Business School of the University of Amsterdam. He was previously affiliated with the same university as a student and received his Master's degree in psychology upon the completion of a thesis validating the Multicultural Personality Questionnaire (MPQ) among both expatriate and international student populations while living in Taiwan. Upon returning to the Netherlands he worked as a research consultant with GITP International BV, but returned to academia in 2002 when he started his PhD in psychology at the Institute of Psychology of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Stefan obtained his PhD in December 2007. His dissertation consists of four studies investigating expatriate selection practices and one study aimed at assessing the performance of police trainees in South-Africa. His research collaborations have appeared (or will appear) in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology (2013), the Journal of Global Mobility (2013), the International Journal of Knowledge and Learning (2012), Human Performance (2009), the International Journal of Selection and Assessment (2009), the International Journal of Intercultural Relations (2005), the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology (2005), the Asian Journal of Social Psychology (2003), and several handbooks.

These projects all focus on job knowledge (either from a training or personnel selection perspective). As of 2013 and until 2017 Stefan is involved in the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) Eduworks (see www.eduworks-network.eu) Finally, Stefan together with a number of colleagues at various faculties of the University of Amsterdam is involved in a project aimed at Learning Analytics.
