Deputy Director of the Centre, Associate Professor Bart de Jong’s research focuses on trust, teams and the inter-link between the two. He integrates existing work on trust across different levels of analyses and breaks new ground by challenging implicit scholarly assumptions about trust (e.g., trust is symmetric). His research on teams spans a variety of topics, including team entrepreneurial passion, team adaptation, peer control, and social hierarchy. Bart earned his PhD in Organizational Behaviour and Master’s degree in Organisation Science, from VU University Amsterdam. His research has been published in some of the world’s leading HR/OB journals, including recent articles in Journal of Applied Psychology, Organization Science and Academy of Management Journal.
