Dual Career Assistance

Nationally, approximately 80% of women in STEM fields have an academic partner. One of our key strategies for ADVANCE-NE is to foster a family friendly university that is responsive to the needs of dual career couples. The ADVANCE-NE office, which operates independently of each department's search process, is eager to work with women in STEM fields who have an academic partner and with applicants for positions in other disciplines whose partner is a woman in a STEM field. When the ADVANCE office is notified of a dual career hire, assistance is available for their interview on campus.
