The University of Utah has great health insurance. It is a minimal amount that is taken out of my paychecks.
Extremely good medical coverage at a very low cost to each employee comparatively. Great retirement benefits
Better than average medical and dental coverage
The benefits cannot be beaten. You will more than likely not be paid the market value for what you are worth (just the nature of state jobs) but it will be made up for in benefits.

As a post doc, unfortunately there are very limited retirement benefits. The health insurance and dental insurance are fantastic, though.
The benefits are great. There’s plenty of PTO, about 10 hours per month +additional 16 per year. There’s great tuition reduction. They also put 14% of your salary into reteriment without you putting in a penny. Overall great benefits.
The University of Utah contributes to a 401a plan (a bit different than 401k) which you cannot contribute to directly, regardless of whether or not you contribute to other retirement plans, like 403b or 457b plans. So, money is not taken from your paycheck for this 401a account, so it is almost like a bonus that goes directly to a retirement account.
The free UTA bus/trax pass with your ID is ideal.
Generous retirement benefit of 14.2% on the taxpayer dime. Health insurance policy that costs more than $2,000 each month on the taxpayer dime.
