Dual Career Partner Placement

Policy on Job Placement Assistance for Dual Career Partners

Brown University recognizes that recruiting and retaining excellent faculty requires that we offer job placement assistance for dual career partners. Brown does not have a specific dual career partners program. But the University does offer resources to address concerns and questions for dual career partners. Staff members in both the offices of the Dean of the Faculty and the Office of Institutional Diversity may be helpful in offering advice and assistance. We encourage department chairs to contact the Dean of the Faculty and the Dean of Biology and Medicine for advice on dual career partner job placement assistance.

New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (NE-HERC)

Brown was one of the founding members of the New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (NE-HERC), a collaborative which now includes more than 50 institutions of higher education and affiliated teaching hospitals, including a number of the region's largest employers. NE-HERC is a free database of job openings at member institutions, with a search engine that allows prospective employees to search for jobs by region, job type, or institution; the website also includes relocation resources and extensive information about local resources, including schools, childcare, cultural organizations, transportation, and so on.
