Employment.png Academic 

Academics generally work either teaching or researching in universities or colleges.

Decreasing independence

“In academic institutions, freedom of thought and expression is in retreat in many areas. Administrators of universities have become top-down representatives of government, rather than defenders of the independence of their institutions. Funding is sought from corporations as well as governments: "market forces" is a euphemism for conformity to corporate demands.”
Ivo Mosley (2013)  [1]
