    10% 401k match for post docs is pretty unusual for a university. Other than that, benefits are reasonably priced and include a full suite of coverage.

    The childcare grant and the employer's contribution towards the retirement plans are really amazing.

    As a graduate student, you got the standard health insurance. Dental and eye can be purchased separately. They also say that they don't want you to work in any other capacity other than being a student.

    Excellent health coverage, that includes a comprehensive wellness component. Option to add on dental and eye care. However, there are two different health plans and the specifics of your plan will be based on whether your job is 'endowed' or through the 'contract college (NYS)'. I have the endowed plan.

    I do not know much about the benefits package as I was not offered one for my part-time position.

    I was a part-time temporary worker with benefits, and was very happy with the health insurance, legal insurance, and free public transportation options.
