One common scenario are scientists who plan their next career move together. The decision to take a position at a university abroad is often influenced by the career prospects of the significant other. That’s why many universities and research institutes in Baden-Württemberg have established dual career services. Dual career services often offer family assistance and help the highly qualified partner find an attractive position.
The Dual Career Network Germany provides a list of universities that offer dual career services. The list links directly to the dual career offices of the member universities and helps you find the right person to contact.
Not all the universities in Baden-Württemberg belong to this network. This, however, doesn’t mean they don’t offer services for families or researchers with partners. Many universities have family services, a family bureau, and childcare facilities, so check with the university, student services and with the international office for options.
