Irish lecturer holds 2 full time positions

An interesting story out of the UK... maybe this answers why some of your profs at University never seemed to be around... and you thought they were doing research! A lecturer has resigned from two colleges after it was discovered he had been working "full-time" for both colleges for the past eight years. Fergal O'Malley was a lecturer in electronic engineering in both the National University of Ireland, Galway and 90km away in the Athlone Institute of Technology. Between the two jobs he was earning about €170,000 a year as well as building up separate pension entitlements. See more
