The American Association of University Professors just released its annual survey of faculty salaries. The headline message is that average faculty salaries in the United States increased just 1.2% over the last year, the smallest jump in fifty years of tracking data.
Breaking down the tables, it shows that at Boston University, the average full professor makes $140,600 a year, associate professors $95,500, and assistant professors $82,100. These figures include the schools of law, dentistry, engineering, business, and arts and sciences, though not the medical school.
Still, the same trends in hiring freezes, furloughs, and budget cuts resonate in the academic medical environment.
