Gert Stulp

Gert Stulp is one of the eight new members of the Young Academy Groningen. T he Young Academy Groningen is a club for the University’s most talented, enthusiastic and ambitious young researchers. Its members come from all disciplines and have a passion for science and an interest in science policy, interdisciplinarity, diversity, internationalization, outreach, leadership and career development in academia.

Gert Stulp is a sociologist with his roots in evolutionary biology. His research centres on the variation in the number of children people have and desire, looking at how characteristics such as education and wealth come into play, as well as how people in our social networks influence our decisions. Within the Young Academy Groningen, Stulp hopes to focus on scientific quality at the University and making the University a pleasant workplace for all, young researchers in particular. He also hopes to combat the ‘publish or perish’ culture that currently has a grasp on science and thus reduce the stress on early career academics. To do so, he will focus his efforts on open science and reproducibility as well as on changing University policy.
