Please indicate the following: Geographical region, school size, urban/rural, rank/position, teaching load, starting salary, misc comments.

  • Please specify as well candidate status and job level: ABD, Post-Doc, TT, non-TT, starting Assistant, advanced Assistant, Associate, etc. since these factors influence salary levels too.
  • Would be interesting to see gender given that everyone says women receive lower initial offers and are less likely to negotiate!
  • For example: Research I, TT starting assistant prof., $54k, 2/3, midwest, small city, negotiated up from $53k.
