If you would like to be a part of a community that enjoys a beautiful 400-acre campus with park-like settings, supports world-renowned research, teaching, and outreach, or assists students to become successful citizens, consider a career with Oregon State University (OSU).
Located in the heart of Oregon’s central valley, OSU’s main campus is in Corvallis, nestled between Eugene and Salem. Enjoy a quaint college town full of art, shopping, wineries, breweries, farm-fresh foods, and much more. And, whether you love the ocean, mountains, waterfalls, or the desert – none are more than a few hours’ drive! If bigger cities are your jam, Portland is two hours north, Seattle just about four. Hit the coast in less than an hour and the desert in three.
