Why work at UW?  Find a Job

As one of the most innovative universities in the world, we hire people who constantly seek new ways to keep us moving forward. Our reputation of advancing diversity, improving sustainability, and conducting ground-breaking medical research is built by employees who are driven to become a part of something greater than themselves. We welcome you to find your place.

Vaccination Requirement

Per Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 21-14.1, employees of higher education and healthcare institutions must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no later than October 18, 2021 unless a medical or religious exemption is approved. Being fully vaccinated means that an individual is at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. As a condition of employment, newly hired employees will be required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination. Updated information about how to provide proof of vaccination or request a medical or religious accommodation will be posted as soon as it is known.

Remote Interviewing

As the University works towards returning to on-site work on campus on Monday, September 13, 2021,  more interviews are conducted in person. Hiring managers coordinate interviews and are observing Washington state masking requirements but may also hold interviews by phone or video conference. Tips for candidates preparing for virtual interviews may be found on the virtual interviewing webpage.

Until the University fully returns to onsite work, telework is still encouraged for positions with duties that can be accomplished remotely and for which teleworking does not impede business operations. However, many UW staff positions require employees to be on campus or in our medical centers. From patient care and research to food service workers and custodial staff, our greater community is counting on UW staff to provide on-site expertise and service. Applicants interested in remote work positions should discuss that feasibility with the hiring manager for the position to which they are applying.
