Profile

Jan Dul is a professor of technology and human factors at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

Professor Dul is chairman of RSM's Technology and Operations Management Department.

His research focuses on human factors (ergonomics) and, in particular, the interaction between people and the technological and social-organisational work environment. The goal of his research is to develop products, tools, production systems and procedures that can improve productivity, quality, creativity, and health and safety in the work environment, thus maximising business performance as well as human well-being.

Professor Dul is currently an associate editor, reviewer, and member of the editorial boards of a number of major academic journals. He is a member of the advisory boards of various associations, agencies and institutes, a handful of which includes the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (VWA), and the Netherlands Standardisation Institute.

He is a regular speaker at management events worldwide and has shared his insights with over 50 companies including professionals in the field of occupational health and safety on the specific issue of how to create work environments that facilitate employee performance and well-being.

Before joining RSM, Professor Dul held a number of senior positions in the (semi) public sector. He was head of the Department of Innovation at the Netherlands Institute for Work and Employment; head of the Department of Posture and Movement Research at the TNO Institute of Preventive Health Care, Leiden; an Ergonomics Researcher at the Department of Working Conditions, the TNO Institute of Preventive Health Care, Leiden.

He has also held positions at the Twente University of Technology in the Netherlands; Vanderbilt University in the USA; and the Foundation for Ergonomic Technology in the Netherlands.
