Classified Service Employment Opportunities
Classified Service positions available at the university are within the purview of NYS Civil Service. Some positions are within the competitive class service and some are non-competitive or labor class.
Competitive and non-competitive vacancies are posted as contractually required for the required number of days and, in general, university employees are considered first for vacancies.
If the university is unable to identify a qualified, internal candidate for a given position, we then accept applications from external applicants.
