Wages for sages 2

June 7, 2002

Alan Ryan sensibly suggests that "British academic life has become unviable". On other pages, the School of Oriental and African Studies advertises for a director of a project on endangered languages with "a salary and benefits that are commensurate with a senior academic post that are competitive within higher education", salary negotiable from £41,500, inclusive of London allowance.

Directly opposite, the University of Lincoln seeks a higher education planning manager, salary circa £45K, plus relocation.

On the next page, the University of Bristol wants a director of academic affairs with a salary "in excess of £60,000" and a director of student administration ("c.£45,000").

Are these advertisements and Ryan's column related? I think we should be told.
