Previously she worked as Assistant Professor and Programme Director of the VU-Graduate School of Social Sciences (VU-GSSS) at the VU University in Amsterdam.


Irma researches employment instability and its implications for individual careers, wage opportunities and public policy. Her research agenda encompasses three main areas: (1) the socioeconomic consequences of disruptive events such as unemployment, joblessness and casual employment; (2) the intergenerational consequences of joblessness; (3) application and innovation of quantitative methods for panel data. She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Madison Wisconsin in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and has published in various journals including Social Science Research, European Sociological Review, British Journal of Industrial Relations and Social Forces.

Among others, Irma serves in the Advisory Editorial Board of the renowned journal of Social Problems, is Adjunct Senior Research Fellow of the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, Associate of the Centre for Vocational and Educational Pathways at University of Melbourne, and Lead investigator on a 4-year funded research project by the Australian Research Council. Irma is also a Fellow of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course where she is involved in the data reference group that aims to improve the Big Data potential in Australia.


Over her career she has taught various courses at undergraduate, graduate and PhD level on both quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as substantive topics. As director of the VU Graduate Program and later at the University of Melbourne she has developed and directed post graduate programs. At the University of Melbourne, Irma teaches three major courses including (i) changing labour markets and social inequality; (ii) comparative social policy and (iii) critical analytical skills.
