Is there any easy way to schedule a job for a duration that is greater
than one month but shorter than 2 months? Any duration will do, as long
as it is easy to schedule.

Mmm... I wonder if using steps values (*/*) in crontab could be possible
set a period of 45 days, that is, a task to be run every month and every
15 days :-?

According to this page[1], the following works for that:

* * */45 * * your_scheduled_task

I've not tried it myself.
