I am a new adjunct professor at the department of my husband\'s and his university. We have independent research projects and share a laboratory though we collaborate with each other to take advantage of our different strengths. Recently, one declined grant proposal was criticized that I lacked of institutional support because I asked salary support and equipments. Worse, the equipments I asked for were commented to supplement my husband\'s research. Worst, I asked advice from our campus research support office and was advised to be a co-PI and let my husband be a PI in my project?! Are these comments \"normal\"? How could a dual scientist couple (one with tt and the other adjunt) work together? Any advice would be appreciated.
