The University of Minnesota welcomes military veterans, service members, and their families. We understand that the skills, discipline, dedication, and leadership you developed in the service are invaluable assets.

Like the military, a career at the University is an opportunity to work where your work matters, by supporting the U's mission of education, research, and outreach. Here you can continue your public service at one of the world's premier public research universities. Our high employee satisfaction scores are comparable to top-performing corporations. Surveys consistently show that U of M employees are happy with their jobs, the people they work with, and the benefits they receive.

Join more than 1,000 military veterans who work at the University. Our current job openings offer a remarkable range of opportunities for service members who want to take the next step in their civilian careers. Whatever your chosen field, you can find a position here that's right for you.

Wondering how your military skills apply to our available jobs? This Civilian-to-Military Occupation Translator helps service members match their military experience to civilian occupations.
