Faculty Salary Information, AY2022-23

To: FAS Department and Program Chairs; FAS Lead Administrators, Chair’s Assistants, and Operations Managers
Cc: FAS Dean’s Office; FAS Steering; Provost’s Office
Dear colleagues:
Please see the charts below for important information on certain non-tenured ladder and lecturer salaries for 2022-23.
Full Time Appointments 2021-22 2022-23
Assistant Professor (minimum) 90,000 94,500
Lecturer Convertible (minimum) 84,000 88,500
Lecturer with Ph.D. (minimum) 66,000 68,000
Lecturer (all but dissertation) 63,000 68,000

There is a rational for this scale: lecturers convertible hold nationally searched ladder appointments and are fully engaged in their departments, so they earn a higher salary than do full-time, one-year appointees, even those with Ph.D.’s in hand. Remember also that persons appointed to one-year teaching ranks are hired only to teach and interact with their students, so they teach more courses per term than do ladder faculty members, who carry many non-teaching responsibilities. A recent graduate student (from Yale or elsewhere) assigned to a full-time teaching position may be appointed as lecturer at the appropriate level of salary as above. Those appointed part-time should be paid as below.

Part-Time Appointments
