Who does the statistics compare you with?
At Lund University, the main rule is that teaching staff and researchers is compared with employees with the same position title within the faculty.
The salary statistics below are thus based on the position title within the faculty. However, there are still differences between the departments for certain positions. Therefore, the statistics below are unfortunately not always comparable for certain groups from a salary policy perspective. We are working with the employer to change the structural problems that exist within the university.
The salary setting at Lund University is individual and the salaries are differentiated, which means that the assessment of your performance will affect what salary you have.
If you want to see what the average salary looks like within a specific faculty or department you can choose your own parameters in Lund University's statistical tool Kuben (you must be on Campus or use a VPN). You select Personal (Staff) and then Löneläge per befattning (Salary level per title). It is only available in Swedish.
If you want to see how the salaries at LU compares to the rest of Sweden, you can use Saco Lönesök. You choose the union you are a member of (Välj förbund) and log in through their system.
What to consider when reading the statistics
Where you are in your career affects where in the statistics you should be. If you are early in your career, you may be somewhere between the 10% percentile and the average salary. If you are at the end of your career, you may be a bit above average, perhaps closer to the 90% percentile. If you have a special area of responsibility within your position without being a manager, you should also be higher.
