Many faculty members who are being recruited by Lehigh University have accomplished partners or spouses who are also seeking employment. Our Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program is available to assist these highly qualified couples who face the dual career challenge. Partners and spouses are encouraged to utilize the Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program as a powerful resource to learn and execute an effective and productive job search.
Who is Eligible for Life & DCConnect?

Partners/spouses of newly hired tenure track faculty may contact the Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program at 610-758-4802 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Job Search vs. Job Placement
The support an accompanying spouse/partner will receive from the Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program will be invaluable toward his/her job search efforts and success. However, the University cannot guarantee job placement. Career searches are most successful when professionals conduct a proactive job search rather than a reactive job search. The success of a job search and the length of a search will depend upon several factors including: the economy, the time an individual dedicates toward a search, how one conducts his/her search, and the type of position he/she is seeking.
