Biography

Bas ter Weel is director at SEO Amsterdam Economics and professor of economics at the University of Amsterdam. After completing his PhD at Maastricht University, he worked as an assistant professor in the department of economics at the same university (2002-2006). By the end of 2006 he moved to the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) and transferred to the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB) by the end of 2007. He became head of the department of international economics (2007-2010) and the department of labour and education (2010-2013). From October 2013 onwards he served as CPB's deputy (and acting) director, a position he held until September 2016. After leaving Maastricht University in 2006 he maintained close ties with the university, which resulted in a parttime position as a senior researcher (2006-2011). Later on he became a full professor in the department of economics (2011-2016).
