Staff and researchers salaries 2016 University of Copenhagen

See what your colleagues, superiors and underlings are earning. Here are the latest statistics on salaries

PLEASE NOTE: The data below is from 2017. Updated 2020 University of Copenhagen salary data can be found here.

Every quarter, the Danish government publishes public sector employees’ earnings including those of staff at the University of Copenhagen. The following list was generated on Lønoverblik where you can find salary statistics on all government employees (see our guide to the right).

FTE means Full Time Equivalent; a unit that indicates the number of employed persons. An FTE of 1.0 means that a person is equivalent to a full-time worker, while an FTE of 0.5 signals that a worker is employed part-time. Salaries include everything actually paid, except overtime payments.

See how each employee measures up, both in terms of number of full-time jobs and wages. We have translated the job categories for clarification.

[Editor’s note: The data is not directly comparable to our previously released 2015, 2014 and 2013 University of Copenhagen salary lists. The data provider ‘Lønoverblik’ may adjust the definition of categories, making published lists incomparable. Their data however is normally back-adjusted to the new definitions so year-on-year comparisons on their site is possible. See link to their data in fact box right]
