Working at the OCSSB

At the OCSSB, we hope to attract bright, capable individuals like you to join our team. We are proud of our diversity and inclusiveness. The culture here is relatively informal (professors in blue jeans is not uncommon), and as Pacific Northwesterners, we delight in our local industries that produce a nationally-recognized food scene, award-winning craft beers and wine, and limitless opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Most of us also value highly our closeness to natural beauty: within a two-hour drive you can reach snow-capped mountains, the high desert or the coast. In fact, at the OCSSB, monthly trips to hike, ski or snowshoe are organized by enthusiasts within our group, open to all (contact liby@ohsu.edu for more information). 

We believe that every individual can make a wonderful difference to our workplace, the community, and science itself. We'd like to get to know you.
