Dual Career Hiring Fund

Dual Career Hiring Fund

As part of its commitment to the recruitment and retention of a diverse and world-class faculty, the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) has established a hiring fund to help support dual career academic appointments. This fund provides three years of partial salary support for opportunity hires in which a potential or current tenure-track, clinical, or research faculty member has a spouse or partner who is also interested in an academic appointment. In such cases, the chair or dean of the hiring unit will identify the appropriate unit for the opportunity hire and establish whether the potential candidate would be an appropriate fit for and meet the appointment criteria in that unit.

If there is interest in an opportunity hire, the unit will determine the appropriate type of appointment and consult with its faculty in accordance with its own unit guidelines. Once there is an agreement to offer an appointment, the OAA will provide one third of the initial salary, on a cash basis, for a period of up to three years. This cost-sharing is contingent on the availability of funds, which are reviewed on an annual basis. The remaining salary and all of the benefits will be split between the hiring units, or in the case of a dual career couple being hired into the same unit, assumed by that unit. The unit making the initial hire is responsible for initiating a Memorandum of Understanding that outlines how the funding will be split and administered. The OAA dual career hiring fund applies to any academic appointment, including all tenure-track and non-tenure-track positions as well as postdoctoral positions. The units can be within a single college, as well as across colleges. College deans should contact Vice Provost Kay Wolf at wolf.4@osu.edu to make requests for cost-sharing from this fund. Allocations to this fund are made annually and disbursements are subject to the availability of funds at the time of the request.
