Research has found that, in academia, work is life.

For Academic Work/Life Balance: Challenges for theory and practice, sociologists Dr Nick Osbaldiston from James Cook University, Monash University’s Fabian Cannizzo and Christian Mauri from Murdoch University surveyed 155 early- to mid-career academics. The survey found that average working days for these academics were nine hours. Nearly all worked on weekends. The sample was taken from multiple disciplines, from a range of metropolitan and regional universities, and was split evenly between men and women. The research is published at The Australian Sociological Association.
