Researcher Salary Scales/Guidelines

The IUA Researcher Salary Guidelines (salary scales) are there to provide guidelines to universities when hiring researchers. It is important to stress that they are not compulsory and have no legal basis.

The categories were developed in conjunction with universities’ policy on researcher careers. They have been adopted as guidelines by most national agencies in their funding programmes. They take cognisance of national wage and pension developments in the context of the public sector.
