Advertising change: The distribution of new jobs in Australian universities
McHoul, A. (2005) Advertising change: The distribution of new jobs in Australian universities. Australian Universities' Review , 48 (1). pp. 24-27.
This paper is a very preliminary report1 on data collected on new university positions (academic and administrative-managerial) advertised in the Australian Higher Education supplement on every Wednesday in the last two quarters of 2004. As a preliminary report only, it cannot deliver on all possible findings from the data. Its aim is more modest than that: to get at least an intuitive picture of Australian universities’ disciplinary and managerial priorities during the period, especially in the light of the much-touted fact that expenditure on salaries is by far the highest call on all universities’ funds today.2 To that extent, at least, new expenditure on salaries ought to give us a general picture of what constitutes importance in the sector today.
