School psychology is particularly fast-growing because of increased public understanding of the link between mental health and learning, the authors point out. The position of college professor scored high on both flexibility and creativity, slightly lower on stress and lowest on ease of entry. Job opportunities for academicians are expected to grow 31 percent over the next decade, according to the data." "According to the Money study, the average salary for a college professor is $81,500, and approximately 95,300 new positions are available annually. By comparison, a recent report by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) lists that average as $70,333. The AAUP data also shows that big differences exist between different types of academic institutions, with full professors at private doctoral universities earning $131,292 on average and assistant professors at community colleges earning $47,046."
