With more than 1,200 employees (as of December 2016), the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences is one of the major employers in the region. "We are all the university": This is one of the guiding principles of the position paper "Project 2023" (document only available in German) that was adopted in 2013 as a fundamental premise for the university. Since 2003, the university has been a public law foundation which also means that it has a high degree of autonomy in the field of personnel management.
The functioning interaction between teaching, research and the science-supportive areas is of great importance for the successful development of the university. In the past few years, the university has invested heavily in its Osnabrück and Lingen locations in order to build a modern infrastructure. This campus atmosphere and the also literally excellent cafeterias offer a pleasant working environment. To be a sought-after teaching, learning and research location, it is even of greater importance to be an attractive, enhancing and reliable employer for smart people with creative drive who are new to the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences or who are already firmly established.
