Dual Career Service

The perfect place for scientists

Career planning? Job search and application? Career change? If you start a new job at an institution of higher education or research institute in Berlin as a scientist or scholar, the question „How does this step affect my partner’s career?“ will be quick to follow.

“Berlin is the perfect place for scientists to combine an excellent scientific environment with family life” says Prof. Giuseppe Caire, „Alexander von Humboldt-Professor“ at Technische Universität Berlin and he should know. His wife Dr. Isabella Fassola – a medicine doctor – has moved with him to Berlin and used the Dual Career Network Berlin (DCNB) to help with the recognition of her foreign professional qualifications. Thus, a first step has been achieved in order to obtain the license to practice medicine and to be professionally active in Berlin.
