Brandeis University is a great employer for all the same reasons it is an outstanding university: a commitment to excellence, dedication to lifelong learning and a grounding in social justice.

Brandeis takes pride not only in maintaining this culture, but also expanding it, by recruiting and retaining outstanding employees who share our values and enrich the campus community.

Brandeis University offers health, dental, life and long-term disability insurance plans, flexible-reimbursement accounts and a basic and voluntary retirement plan as core benefits to eligible employees.

Diversity, equity and inclusion across our multiple social identities benefit our entire community. When we work and learn with people who are different from us, we are more likely to solve problems creatively, enhance our critical thinking skills, and develop our strengths as teachers and as learners. Because our history and institutional goals are rooted in the pursuit of social justice, we include this value in all that we do.

testWork-Life Balance

At Brandeis, we are committed to helping our most important resources — our faculty and staff. To help balance work achievements and life activities, Brandeis offers a variety of programs, services and resources to help our employees attain a healthy, balanced lifestyle. You'll find everything from yoga and exercise classes, to lactation rooms and break times for nursing mothers, to an on-campus child care center.
