As one of the top-ranking universities in the world, we have an important job to do: make the world a better place. This means UBC has a remarkable range of career opportunities: it’s not your typical day-to-day. With this kind of range, our people need to be unique too. It’s not a cookie-cutter environment, where ordinary cuts it. It takes people with vision, with a spark, with perseverance and with passion. We value our faculty and staff members and are always looking for talented people to join our thriving team.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person. While all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
We’re looking for people with spark. Someone who brings a little creativity and a genuine passion to their work. Someone who looks up from their research long enough to see real students on the other side.
