Hi everyone! I saw the following thread on Reddit about university faculty during the summer. https://www.reddit.com/r/AskAcademia/comments/2h729e/do_professors_get_summers_off/ Some of the respondents claim that college/university faculty do not get paid at all during the summer in the US. I was surprised to hear this, because I thought that the base pay for tenured and tenure-track university faculty (both in the US and elsewhere) was based on a 12-month pay schedule (with additional pay depending on course load). Following up on this Reddit thread: 1. For those PF members who are currently tenure-track or tenured faculty -- do you get paid during the summer? 2. To those PF members who are postdocs -- does your pay (which I presume is based on either external funding like NSF) carry over during the summer?
