Information about faculty salaries (including librarians and program directors), from starting salaries to payroll details such as deductions and direct deposit.
Salaries and total compensation
At UBC, we look at the total compensation picture – a combination of competitive salaries, benefits, pension plans and supportive leaves.
For an overview of total compensation provisions available to various ranks and types of appointments, please refer to the Eligibility for Total Compensation Provisions Summary (pdf) (Please note that this document prints on legal size paper, but we'd recommend enlarging the document to 11×17 for reading ease.)
Starting salaries are negotiated between the new faculty member, librarian or program director in Continuing Studies, and the responsible head of unit when offered an appointment.

Research associates are paid from research grants or contracts, based on negotiation around a minimum yearly amount.
Sessional lecturers who are newly hired are placed at Step 1 of a posted minimum salary scale.
