About me & CV

My name is Joris van der Voet. I am currently an Assistant Professor in Public Management at Leiden University in The Netherlands. My research is focused on organizational change in public sector organizations. More specifically, my research is concerned with 1) the leadership of change in public organizations, and 2) cutback management in response to financial decline. I teach courses on organization and management, public management, and change management.

From September 2009 – August 2013, I obtained my PhD in public management at the Department of Public Administration at Erasmus University Rotterdam.  My PhD thesis is focused on the leadership of change in public organizations. I have published my research on this topic in international academic journals such as Public Administration, Public Management Review, The American Review of Public Administration, the European Management Journal and the Journal of Organizational Change Management.

From September – December 2013, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Erasmus University Rotterdam. As a member of the COCOPS FP7 project (, I concentrated my research activities on the effects of cutback implementation on public sector organizations. From 2014 to March 2015, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Public Governance and Management at ESADE Business School in Barcelona.
