Caltech’s Human Resources department has an essential and integral role at the Institute. As Caltech ambassadors it is important that we (1) understand and reflect the core mission of the Institute; (2) continually train, educate and teach ourselves and others; and (3) strive to build a healthy, resilient and engaged community.

Human Resources has three core values that represent what is important and necessary to help us fulfill our Institute role: integrity, collaboration and excellence.

We are committed to advancing the Institute’s distinguished reputation by attracting, recruiting, and supporting individuals who have extraordinary curiosity, talent, and energy.

We do this by

  • Training and developing staff
  • Thoughtfully and strategically promoting the Institute
  • Supporting the business goals of Caltech organizational units
  • Facilitating communication and fostering relationships among constituents
  • Providing a healthy work environment and work/life resources 

Here at Caltech, we believe in a total-reward philosophy, so we offer our employees competitive compensation packages, competitive health and welfare benefits, and exceptional retirement benefits as well as an engaging work environment, work/life balance, and training, development, and promotional opportunities.
