Are you an experienced Project Manager, looking to apply your skills to a challenging and satisfying mission? Are you tired of managing projects spanning a wide geographic area, not knowing whether your next assignment will be in Portland, Eugene, or Eastern Oregon? Here at Portland State University, we are transforming our Campus, project-by-project, raising the quality of the Campus environment, improving the student experience, and serving the University's urban research mission. We offer interesting and diverse work, while providing all of the training, tools, and equipment necessary to modernize our delivery of top-quality projects. We are looking for a motivated project manager, willing to share their expertise, to learn from our staff of experienced professionals, and to mentor our junior employees (including our student employees).
PSU Capital Projects and Construction (CPC) executes all renovation and construction projects on campus, ranging in size from painting a room, renovating offices, classrooms, and labs, to major building renovations and new building construction. We also have in-house design and construction staff, who address some of our smaller projects. We recently transformed our project management and design office to a collaborative open office environment, where we tackle our challenges together, while taking advantage of the abundant natural light and our exciting downtown Portland location.
