On June 28, 2012, UC Berkeley held a PhD Colloquium on Dual-Track Couples, and I was invited to speak on this topic. Over 70% of PhDs are in dual-career relationships. This “Two Body” problem adds to the stress and uncertainty caused by the already challenging academic job search process. The purpose of the colloquium was to equip PhDs with information and advice designed to help them navigate the search for career opportunities and provide spouses/partners with useful strategies for pursuing their own personal and professional objectives as an academic or in other realms.
The focus of my talk was on 1) helping couples understand the issues and challenges that they may be facing as they relocate together and 2) providing practical information and strategies on what they can do to create personal and professional meaningful lives after relocating.
