In contract to available information for faculty positions, I would be interested to learn how to go for a spousal-hire arrangement at a postdoc level. In my view, there are three factors that might play a role (similarity of work, obviousness of the relationship, funding).
My specific question:
How would you approach as a rather obvious couple (based on overlap in the CV) an application to the same lab (due to the same sub-specialization)?
- Two independet applications or single application?
- Mentioning the partner or not?
- Or applications seperated over time? I.e. one application and then asking for a spousal-hire arrangement during the actual hiring process?
