Affiliated researcher, University of Amsterdam

Dr Susanne Täuber is a social psychologist and expert in gender equality, harassment and power abuse in higher education. She is affiliated with the University of Amsterdam. She investigates factors that affect the decoupling of practice from policy, for instance in the context of gender quotas and diversity, considering in particular power, intersectionality and inequality regimes. Dr Täuber further is interested in social identity processes during societal and organizational change, particularly where trajectories of culture, norm and value change are concerned.

Her research has received substantial funding, for instance from the Dutch Research Foundation and the Dutch and German Ministries of Defense. Her work has been published in leading journals of social psychology (e.g., Personality and Social Psychological Bulletin), organization and management science (e.g., Journal of Management Studies, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes) and multidisciplinary science journals (e.g., The Lancet, Nature, Climate Change).

Dr Täuber serves as a member of the Advisory Committee Diverse and Inclusive Higher Education and Research, which provides advice to the Dutch government on promoting an inclusive, diverse and safe learning and working environment within the field of higher education and in scientific research. She further volunteers at the Academic Parity Movement and the Network Against Power Abuse in Science, non-profit organizations aiming to fight harassment and power abuse in academia.
