Default Salaries of Professors

Someone left a comment asking about the pay of university dons. Here's what I got (based on a thread in Expat Singapore Forum):
Quote:
Professor S$178,750 - S$270,875
Associate Professor S$108,625 - S$204,875
Assistant Professor S$71,500 - S$121,690
If you think the numbers look high, recall that NTU Professor Bryan Ngoi Kok Ann, who was found guilty of lying to CPIB, could afford to give his mainland Chinese mistress a $7,000-a-month allowance and expensive gifts like a $11,000 Chopard watch. (ST, 26 September 2006)

And remember Chua Choong Tze? He was the youngest assistant professor in Singapore at the time he joined SMU to teach and research in finance. It was said that a person with his credentials can "earn at least US$100,000 at any good American university for a nine-month contract." And he was just 23. (ST, 20 July 2003)

In comparison, an R&D manager makes only $7,890.

Your numbers look quite right <b>when</b> compared with the salaries from the Ivy League universities:

(the numbers there are in U.S. dollars)

hi,
thanks for the info..
I'm wondering however, if the stated salaries for profs are annual salaries, i.e. you're comparing annual salaries of profs with the monthly salary of the r&d manager? Because the pdf showing yale salaries do seem like annual ones =)

cheers

MJ, you are spot on. The comparison is perhaps not fair, given that $7,890 x 12 = $94,680 and it does not include performance bonuses. But it's already the 75th-percentile research manager's salary. Maybe what I should drive at is that a researcher working as a professor has better opportunities (in salary) than just a research manager.

thanks for your clarification! =)

I know both professions are not easy, but hmm... maybe an r&d manager is 'easier' to become compared to an A/P, Prof, etc., hence the higher pay for the latter, i.e. not all r&d managers may be qualified to be professors.

The Assist Prof (AP) salary has a big varation. how about a person joining as AP from top 5 universities in US and has 3+ years post PhD experience?

Assistant professors 7-12k

Associate professors 12-17k

Professors salary can be anything.

Bonus about 3 months (performance bonus plus 13th month).

Hmmm.... then i received a rather low ball offer for Assoc Prof...

Another question... for Unis in Singapore, is ‘open contract’ the equivalent of tenure contract?

no, it is different. Tenure is Tenure. it is job for life.
they cannot sack you unless you commit "personal indiscretion" with a student.
for open contract, they can fire you anytime.

just curious are you already an associate prof at the university of your home country?
