Most Poles do not have habilitacje, so it doesn't matter at all what most Poles would be happy with
True, however you have to remember habilitacja is only the middle of the ladder in the Uniwersity. And sorry, many doctors dream of getting a work in their field and not end up working at the shop. Are you so out of reality you don't know that?
That's what I got as a teaching assistant when I was a grad student 30 years ago in the States. A mere $14,000 a year. Peanuts. And to drag my caboose half way across the globe for so little would simply not be an option. At all.
Great and I understand that but don't you think other ppl may have different outlook? For example they may want the adventure and expirience not the money?
I have to agree with this. You're out of your element, Lenka.
I talked to my two friends doing their doctorates(and working at the Uni) and guess what ? They agree with me. Whem I told them about these almost starving professors that can't have decent life I thought they will fall from their chairs. But I guess their opinion is not valid as well.
Dominic, I was wondering how your title was treated in Poland? I mean were you listed and clasified as doktor habilitowany?
OP, I must warn what I say about academics earning good money is not about a native speaker of English that has a master. I was talking about well established academics, usually Polish.
