How Much Do Professors Work? One Researcher Is Trying To Find Out
from The Chronicle of Higher Education
How many hours should professors work each week? Everyone has a different answer, especially professors. Case in point: When Nicholas A. Christakis, a professor at Yale University, asserted on Twitter that graduate students should work more than 60 hours each week, a debate ensued. Professors pointed to studies that suggested not everyone can devote more than 40 hours each week to their jobs — for example, if they have kids — or that the institutions and departments they work for may have different standards of work, research and competitiveness.
