Careers

As one of Canada's top teaching and research universities, we employ over 14,000 full- and part-time staff across four campuses, making us one of the largest employers in the Province of Alberta. 

We are growing rapidly to meet the demand for relevant research and highly trained leaders in public health. As the first school of public health in Canada to be accredited by the U.S. Council on Education for Public Health, we have voluntarily held ourselves to a set of quality standards, and will continue to do so. We think this positions the School to attract the brightest and best students, staff and researchers.
