The rewards of a UC career

A mission-driven career

Many companies can offer interesting work, but few can demonstrate that their efforts are meaningful. When you choose a UC career, you are advancing public education in California and supporting the university’s mission of teaching, research and public service. Your efforts, regardless of your day-to-day focus, are part of the immense possibility UC researchers prove every day.

Benefits to support you at every step

UC’s total benefits package is one of the most generous in the industry. We offer comprehensive health, dental, vision, life and disability insurance, as well as many other supplemental resources. One of our most sought-after advantages is our generous and stable retirement program. Plan your future at UC with our pension or 401K plans — both offer generous matching funds.
