Abstract: Using data from a survey of the Irish academic labour market, this paper examines whether or not females in the Irish academic system are paid less than comparable males. Variables which adjust for comparability include academic discipline, qualifications, research output, teaching and administrative experience, and career-breaks. The results, which support the findings of similar studies based on US data, suggest that, other things being equal, Irish females are paid 10 per cent less than their male counterparts. Comparison of academics appointed before and after 1975 suggests that, correcting for age, the gap between male and female salary differentials may be narrowing.
