Reconciling career with family is made challenging by the flexibility and mobility demanded for a career in research. Frequent job changes and regular stays abroad are the norm. As a start-up support, the Dual Career Service at the MPIA supports double career couples in the continuation of their partner's professional career.
In cooperation with the University of Heidelberg, the University Hospital of Heidelberg, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the City of Heidelberg, Heidelberg Teacher's Training College, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), SRH Holding and the other Heidelberg Max Planck Institutes, the Dual Career Service initiates and arranges contacts with potential employers in the Heidelberg region and thereby provides support in finding appropriate positions.
