Saudi Arabia and Canada Lead in Pay for Faculty Members, Study Finds
Fischer, Karin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n12 pA33 Nov 2008
Starting salaries for newly minted professors are highest in Canada, but for the best prospects of raising earnings over an academic career, one should look to Saudi Arabian universities. These are some of the findings of a new study that looks at faculty pay across international borders, examining salary data in 15 countries, among them the United States. The findings are described in a report, "International Comparisons of Academic Salaries: An Exploratory Study," by the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College. The report includes comparisons of entry- and top-level pay and average salaries, as well as how academic wages measure against average income levels within each country.
