dc.description.abstractThe academic profession is an occupation in which pay has fallen dramatically, resulting inthe setting up of a Committee of Inquiry to examine both pay relativities and mechanisms forpay determination. This paper considers salary determination and the gender salary gap inthe academic labour market drawing upon a particularly detailed data set of 900 academicsfrom five traditional Scottish Universities. Results reveal an aggregate gender salarydifferential for academic staff of 15%. Most of this differential can, however, be explained byour model. Evidence suggests a limited opportunity for female academics to combine careerand family, despite the flexibility of an academic job and emphasises the importance ofmobility to the male career. Publication record, but not teaching ability, is found to be animportant determinant of salary. The dominant contribution of rank to both the determinationof female academic salaries and the gender salary gap suggests vastly differentialopportunities for promotion faced by men and women.en_US
