For some years I had thought of adding a section detailing the evolution of my salaries throughout the years but wasn’t sure whether there was some local policy/law about this and never had the time to actually find out about that. Eventually I moved to a public university in 2012 and in this case the law establishes that all salaries are public so I think it’s the perfect time to finally do this. 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 this amount takes place (i.e. yearly salary raise) or when I switched to a different institution.
