External speaking engagements, editing, consulting, and custom external teaching all require a lot of time and effort beyond what I commit to my university day job. A small amount of this kind of activity is consistent with holding a full-time academic job. I consider peer review (no more than 3x as many papers as I submit myself in a calendar year), examining PhD research, giving short research-focused talks, and targeted consulting work for non-profit agencies part of my job, and I’m happy to do those things for free or for the small honoraria they sometimes entail. Anything beyond that, particularly if extraneous travel or new preparation is required, goes beyond what I am already paid to do.
I am willing to consider external contract work on a case-by-case basis. Fees for additional work may vary depending on the situation – do get in touch if you are interested and we can discuss. Indicative fees:
To prepare and deliver a half-day workshop: £700 plus all travel expenses
To review a profit-generating publication or textbook (after peer reviewing quota is met, which it always is): £30 per hour required to read text and complete review
