dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the hypothesis that the gender salary gap observed in the academic labourmarket is predominantly explained by the differing average characteristics of male and femaleacademics and barriers to female promotion. Preliminary analysis reveals that the crowding ofwomen into the lower rungs of academia is a strong determinant of their lower average salary.This effect should be transitory as young women, now entering the profession, move up itsranks. We construct a rank attainment model and investigate the current and predicteddistribution of females across ranks. Significant evidence of barriers to female promotion isrevealed.en_US
