Welcome to the Dual Career Network Rhineland!

We offer help and support to dual career couples in the Rhineland

A winning team
you as a couple and we as a network!

In the course of their career, scientists often find that considerable demands are made on them in terms of flexibility and mobility. At the same time, the number of "Dual Career Couples", i.e. (university educated) couples both pursuing their individual careers, is steadily on the rise. One partner´s decision to relocate for professional reasons is increasingly dependent on whether attractive career opportunities also exist in the area for his or her spouse.

The universities and research institutions that make up the Dual Career Network Rhineland all have the same objective: to attract exceptional scientists to the Rhineland, not only to offer them outstanding working facilities, but also to enable them to achieve a realistic balance between the demands of work and partnership/family.

A winning team - you as a couple and we as a network

In order to achieve this, we provide targeted support both for your own professional development as a newly appointed or established scientist and for your partner in the form of a new career start in the Rhineland. Through our Dual Career Network Rhineland, we identify a range of opportunities matching your individual qualification profile.
