As faculty we enjoy 9 month contracts with 3 months off to help with class prep, professional development, etc
Vacation time for university jobs are pretty standards. Faculties have time off the same time as students. In addition to maternity leave you can also have lower teaching workload which for that you should negotiate with the head of your department.
About three weeks a year can be taken off and most likely you'll still be paid. Very few advisors do not pay during vacations.
Standard holidays you receive off
There is nothing I want to complain.
As an academic professional you get LOTS of vacation. Hopefully you'll have time to take it!
I was prefect for my needs for doing research and travel time. The university, however, was not very supportive in terms of funding research expenses, Have a summer, Christmas break and spring break provided a lot of time off.
Plenty of time off with state holidays as well as plenty of time off earned with every paycheck. I get 6 weeks off a year with my time spent in service.
You start with 3.67 hours per pay period and after five years it increases. You also get the same number of sick days per pay period.
Arizona State University for their Vacation & Paid Time Off-depended on what neededd to be done for the research so it was pretty flexible.
