The Clayman Institute at Stanford University presents a research study on dual-careers in academia. They discovered that over 70 percent of faculty are in dual-career relationships; more than a third are partnered with another academic. This trend is particularly strong among women scientists and people in assistant professor positions.

Based on the partnering status of full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty in thirteen top U.S. research universities, this report explores the impact of dual-career partnering on hiring, retention, professional attitudes, and work culture in the U.S. university sector. It also makes recommendations for improving the way universities work with dual-career candidates and strengthen overall communication with their faculty on hiring and retention issues.
