The Dean is happy to discuss with candidates for faculty positions opportunities in the Five-College area that may be available for their spouses or partners.  We recommend that candidates also consult the following web sites.

Academic Career Network:

Amherst participates in the Academic Career Network, a program that connects job candidates to openings at a consortium of institutions, including the Five Colleges and other local and regional institutions. The Academic Career Network (ACN) helps campuses accommodate dual career couples. It is common for colleges and universities to offer positions to one member of a couple, but not have a job available for the other member. ACN provides couples with easy access to job postings at dozens of colleges and universities in New England and upstate New York. In addition, member campuses belong to a listserv on which deans and human resources directors share resumes of job-seeking partners and spouses. ACN is administered through and based at Five Colleges, Incorporated in Amherst, Massachusetts. For information about contacting ACN, view the ACN Contact page.
