Below I detail the evolution of my salaries throughout the years until I moved to Universidad de Antofagasta in 2012. After this move it would be redundant to keep this list up to date because public universities are required to publish the salaries of their employees in their institutional websites, so any interested person has a way to find out this information via some other means. As it would be quite boring to add the monthly detail I’m just listing the normal salary (after taxes) until a substantial change in the amount took place (i.e. yearly salary raise) or when I switched to a different institution.
