Dual career programs

UBC supports the needs of dual career couples for tenure-track and tenured faculty and some administrative positions.

The Dual Career Program can assist partners in exploring faculty and staff job possibilities at the university, as well as other career options in the Greater Vancouver area. While the Dual Career Program cannot guarantee job placement at UBC or elsewhere, we work to open as many doors as possible.

Candidates for faculty positions and their partners should first contact the department head, director or selection committee chair of the academic unit to which they are applying. The unit representative can then connect partners with the appropriate dual career contact at UBC who will guide them through the process.

In exceptional cases where a confidential conversation is needed, contact Eric Eich, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President Academic Affairs.
