Dual Career

Dual Career in Germany

When deciding to relocate, it is not just the individual career path that is decisive, but also the possibilities for spouses and partners are an imporant factor to consider. Appointments of foreign researchers, in particular, often fail due to a lack of job opportunities for their partners. Individual solutions must be created to support such couples, especially when both partners are pursuing professional careers.

An increasing number of German universities and research institutions now have advisory offices specialising in dual careers. They help the partners of foreign researchers assimilate in the German job market and provide initial support.
