FAVER Careers

For more than 29 years, the Foundation for Atlanta Veterans Education and Research (FAVER) has partnered with the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Health Care System to develop a diverse research portfolio dedicated to investigating physical and psychological afflictions of the brave men and women who have served our country in the Armed Forces.

As an equal opportunity employer, FAVER will always endeavor to select the best qualified individuals based on job-related qualifications, irrespective of such factors as race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition, e.g., cancer-related or genetic characteristics, ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or status as a covered veteran or on any basis prohibited by federal,
state or local law.

We attract and retain talented employees who believe in making a difference in the lives of others through their on-going research. In addition to a competitive salary, FAVER offers a benefits package that includes a choice of medical, dental and vision plans, life and AD&D insurance, flexible spending accounts, and a generous 403(b) retirement plan as well as various
leave and holiday benefits.  (If the position is less than full-time, certain benefits may not accrue to the employee; this will be verified at time of employment.) If you are interested in doing the most rewarding work of your life, explore amazing
opportunities with FAVER!

As part of the WOC appointment, employees are subject to various requirements as set forth by the Atlanta VA Health Care System and/or the institution at which the employee works.

WOC status awards the employees of some benefits and responsibilities of employment at the Atlanta VA Health Care System. The WOC appointment consists of background clearance, online training, fingerprinting, TB tests, education verification, and other components.  The WOC appointment is managed by the Research Administration office at AVAHCS. Please contact FAVER Human Resources if there is a question as to the applicability of any requirement of policy at the Atlanta VA Health Care System that is not covered in this handbook.
