On May 14, 2018, my 66th birthday and for my age cohort the obligatory retirement age, I became an emeritus professor at Leiden University where I remain involved in several research programs, among others the Leiden Consortium for Individual Development (L-CID as Scientific Consultant), 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, Department of Clinical Child and Family Studies.

At Erasmus University Rotterdam I will remain a parttime (0.25) 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 (Erasmus Medical Center).

Since 2017 I am Honorary Senior Visiting Fellow, Department of Public Health and Primary Care, School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge, UK, and in 2019 Visiting Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, working in the Applied Social Sciences Group headed by Robbie Duschinsky.
