Career, relationship, family, and mobility - it is definitely not easy to deal with so many different priorities at once. So the five Styrian universities and the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt have joined forces and set up the so called “Dual Career Service” at each institution to assist you in these matters.
From now on the partners of professors, young scientists, artists, and managers will receive all the necessary support. The service will include individual solutions, useful contacts with possible employers, and help with jobs. Additionally, relevant information on registration, residence, schools, child care and so on will be released. All in all, the aim is to make it easier for you to adapt to a new environment. However, there cannot be given any guarantee for a work place, a place in a child care institution or the like.
Together with the CLUB INTERNATIONAL (CINT), a center of excellence and service for international key employees and their families in Graz and Styria and the CARINTHIAN INTERNATIONAL CLUB (CIC) we take care of your quick start in a new environment.
Our Dual Career Netzwork Austria (DCNA) consisting of Austria Universities, tertiary educational institutions and cooperation partners - works together with the aim of the professionalization in the field of dual career.

Well trained couples strive for common success in their careers, happiness in their relationship, and the possibility to commonly deal with family affairs such as child care and upbringing and family care. The fact that universities no longer can do without female managerial staff is one main reason for establishing the dual career service at universities.
According to various studies, especially female scientists give up their own careers for family reasons. Crucial criteria for scientists and artists to take on a job at a university in a completely new environment are, amongst others, a certain scope for personal development in the fields of research and education, appropriate infrastructure, and professional perspectives for partners. So the dual career service will develop all the necessary conditions to make the universities attractive for both national and international scientists and artists.
Nowadays more and more men make their job decisions with regard to compatibility of family and career.
The universities are definitely attractive regional employers. They will contribute vastly to a better compatibility of family and career with this trend-setting dual career service and the planned objectives for the advancement of women.
