State Worker Salary Search – The Sacramento Bee, Sacramento, California

A great reference site for academic salaries. It seems to work ostensibly even for luminaries such as Nobel Laureates.

Some useful tidbits I’ve learned about the site:

Putting in a blank often gives a ranked list of salaries in a unit — e.g. a dept. at UCLA .

Total pay is everything received, including summer salary and can include things like one-time housing/moving supplements etc. The total is not accurate, reflecting the fact that many professors get salaries from other sources.

For academic year salary, the ‘base pay’ is 9-month salary. That’s the actual number set by the University and is the most reliable number to use as a guide to salary scales.

In the UC system, there is a different salary scale for engineers and for other faculty. Also, for faculty in ‘health science’ (HCOMP in title) are on 11-months salary — for them the total is the only meaningful number.

In connection with this it’s good to look at:
