In May 2018 I retired and became an emeritus of Leiden University where I remain involved in several research programs, among others the Leiden Consortium for Individual Development (L-CID), 3G Family Lab, and Father Trials. These research projects partly moved to the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam where Marian Bakermans-Kranenburg was appointed in the Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences, Clinical Child and Family Studies.

At Erasmus University Rotterdam I am a parttime professor of human development in the Department of Psychology, Education, and Child Studies (DPECS) until 2023, and one of the co-leaders of Generation R.

From 2017 to 2020 I am Honorary Senior Visiting Fellow, Department of Public Health and Primary Care, School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, UK, and Visiting Scholar at Sidney Sussex College, working in the Applied Social Sciences Group headed by Robbie Duschinsky.
