    Calling all Professors

    What can a university professor (Social Sciences) expect in contract?

    For example, teaching load, assistant, conference travel, start-up fees/book fees, etc?

    Any insight is welcomed!

    Professor in American sense, or in UK sense?

    Oh, sorry. US professor. Currently, Associate Professor (tenured).

    Thanks!

    I think that would be similar to Instructor / lecturer level in Hong Kong. Salary range from HK$22000 - 45000 a month depending on experience / qualifications. Not much in the way of benefits besides medical and dental. Conference leave not a problem, but there would be a limit on the amount that can be claimed each year. Teaching load ranges a lot, and with the 4 year degree starting soon, will probably increase in the short term.
