Dual Career Academic Couples: Online Dual Career Toolkit

This Toolkit is a quick and practical tool for Stanford graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in all fields. The first slides showcase key findings from Clayman's 2008 research on dual-career academic couples. The later ones feature helpful tips such as determining your bottom line with your partner ahead of time, how to investigate an institution's policies on spousal hiring, and when to bring up your partner with a hiring committee. A useful way to orient yourself on this issue.

While addressed to couples in which both partners are academics, the advice for job applicants is potentially helpful for dual-career couples where only one partner is an academic.
