Stanford/San Jose State IRACDA Program

The NIH-sponsored IRACDA program combines a traditional, principal-investigator directed postdoctoral research experience at Stanford with mentored teaching at San Jose State University. The goal of this program is to create a career development path for postdoctoral scientists in the biosciences who have a strong interest in teaching and serving as a role model for students from underrepresented populations. It is structured over a three-year period with gradually increasing responsibilities. You will find a listing of participating departments on the IRACDA website.

Applications are considered on a continuous basis.

Dual-Career Academic Couples: What Universities Need to Know

Are you well acquainted with the "Two-Body Problem"? In 2008, the Clayman Institute conducted a research study on academic dual-career couples. Seventy-two percent of the tenured and tenure-track faculty who participated in the study reported having employed partners. This PDF addresses partnering patterns in the US academic workforce and analyzes a range of university programs, policies, and practices. This guide will help you decide which types of faculty roles and academic institutions might fit your needs and values, as well as those of your partner. It is especially useful for women and people of color within dual-career couples, whom the study found are more likely to be partnered with another academic and to be the partner hire.

Note that this Clayman report contains information that is potentially useful for any dual-career couple, even if only one is an academic.
