Job Opportunities

At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) headquarters in Princeton, N.J., dedicated professionals apply a diverse range of knowledge and expertise to a shared vision: Everyone in America should have the opportunity to live a healthier life.

Active Recruitment Paused through April 2020

The Foundation community is following the call for physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recruitment is an interactive, collaborative opportunity for us to identify and meet great candidates and for those potential colleagues to learn about and experience the Foundation community in action. To provide a safe and thoughtful experience for all, we will pause active recruitment through the month of April and will reassess conditions at that time to determine next steps in the continuation of recruitment efforts.  

The Foundation summer internship program will continue, with a limited number of positions. All candidates selected for consideration in the internship program have been contacted. Due to the volume of interest in the internship program we are unable to contact all other candidates with the outcome of their application.

Thank you for your continued interest in employment at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
