Dual Career Assistance Program

The Office of the Provost’s Dual Career Assistance Program is designed to assist partners of newly hired tenured and tenure-eligible faculty obtain faculty appointments at the University of Cincinnati.

The Office of the Provost will provide partial support for faculty salaries, typically on a matching basis from the home department or college, and for a limited time, typically two to three years. Dual Career awards will be made when departments have met the following requirements:

  • Demonstrated academic program needs
  • Support for the hire from the department or school as evidenced by an affirmative majority vote from the faculty (or group that votes) for the new hire at specified rank
  • Endorsement by the dean of the college
  • Meets qualifications for position being sought

The intent of this program is to provide bridge funding to support dual career hires that will be fully funded by the candidates’ respective colleges, schools or departments within two to three years.

Newly hired faculty seeking employment opportunities for a partner are encouraged to discuss the Dual Career Assistance Program with the hiring unit early in the process.
