Applying at the University

The University's online employment system helps you find the best fit for a career at the University. With the online system, you can search for positions by keyword; complete your application online; attach supporting documents, such as a resume or curriculum vitae; and manage, edit, and check the status of your application.

All new hires in to non-student positions will undergo a background check. Our presumption is that prospective employees are eligible to work here. Criminal convictions do not automatically disqualify finalists from employment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: New employment website coming April 20!

Beginning April 20, the University of Minnesota will be using a new online application system. It modernizes the University's online hiring software, providing an easy-to-use, intuitive application process that will make it easier for you to search for openings and apply for multiple positions.

What this means for job applicants:

From now through April 19: You may continue to apply for jobs using the current system. If you apply for a job before April 20, your application will be processed as usual. You will not have to reapply for any jobs after April 20. However we encourage you to print or digitally save outside our system any copies of past applications, résumés, cover letters, references, or other materials. These will not transfer to the new system, and you will have to re-create them later in the new system if you want to apply for jobs in the future.

Beginning April 20: All job applications will be processed through the new system. Although you will not need to reapply for any jobs you applied for before April 20, if you apply for any new jobs on or after April 20, you will have to re-enter your applicant information, including your personal information, job history, and résumé.

Safety and Security on Campus

Every year, the University publishes "Safety and Security on Campus," a brochure that includes the most recent three years of reported crime statistics along with safety policies, procedures, and services. The report, part of the University’s compliance with the federal Clery Act, is available online in a downloadable, printable PDF document. To request the brochure in print or in another format, contact University Police at 612-624-2677.

Relocation Assistance

The Relocation Assistance Program offers information and resources to new and prospective faculty, staff, and their families. RAP also assists departments conducting employment searches.

Through the Dual Career Services program, RAP works with spouse/partners of new employees to explore employment options. The University of Minnesota is one of more than 50 members of the Upper Midwest Higher Education Recruitment Consortium that works to support dual-career and diversity hiring.
