Commitment to Veterans


Rockefeller University is pleased to welcome former military personnel to our community. RU actively seeks to recruit and employ veterans in every level of our workforce. The vast experiences and abilities of Veterans provide diversity throughout our university.

No matter where your military career has led you, there may be work at RU that matches your skill set. Our job offerings encompass a wide variety of career areas including, but not limited to, administration, finance, security, plant operations/engineering, and information technology. We encourage you to search our job listings and apply.

Outreach to Veterans

We post all of our open jobs on the Rockefeller Veterans Jobs site so that our jobs are made available to veterans and are easily accessible. Rockefeller University’s employment recruiters often attend Veterans career fairs and events as well as recruit through organized Veteran programs.

Current Programs on Campus

Our Veterans Affinity Group joins together during the year to attend University-sponsored events, including sporting events and food trucks.
