Nancy Rapoport reports this item from The Chronicle of Higher Education:

Survey of Junior Professors Shows Best Places to Work in AcademeJunior faculty members, generally, are a satisfied lot, according to the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education. But those at Brown University, Davidson College, Kenyon College, Stanford University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Virginia seem downright ecstatic about their jobs.

The junior faculty members at those institutions ranked among the most satisfied, according to a survey of 5,000 faculty members at 42 colleges and universities. The survey, which was conducted in 2005 and released on Tuesday, asked faculty members to rate their job satisfaction on a five-point scale on concerns such as the clarity of the tenure process, compensation, and work and family balance.
