A career at Occidental is intellectually stimulating and wholly fulfilling—so long as you don’t mind our stunning campus, thoughtful and engaged student body, and exceptional faculty and staff.
Nestled in Eagle Rock, between downtown Los Angeles and historic Pasadena, we get the best of both worlds: small-town charm and L.A.’s rich cultural life.
Ours is a collegial and intimate academic work environment. Students, faculty, and staff make up a diverse, close-knit community of peers. We offer a generous benefits package and all the perks that Southern California and a small liberal arts school have to offer.
All open positions for faculty, staff, administrators, and Oxy students are current and up to date.
As a condition of hire for a staff position and for appointment to a faculty position, Occidental College requires that all candidates who have received a conditional offer of employment complete an application form (if they have not already done so) and consent to a background check. Satisfactory completion of a background check, along with pre-employment verifications and references are required as a condition of employment, but only as permitted by federal, state, and local law, including the City of Los Angeles Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring Ordinance.
