*Prepared by Merve Durusoy under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Çiğdem Apaydın, this article is a summarized version of the Master's Thesis entitled "Academics' Views on the Sources of Career Recession", which was presented as a platform presentation at the International Higher Education Studies Conference (12-14 October 2017, Antalya, Turkey).
The objective of this research is to investigate the opinions of the faculty members working at Akdeniz University on stagnation in their careers. For this purpose, the views of the academic staff on the reasons of stagnation and whether their views on the stagnation differ according to the variables of gender, marital status, age, title, length of experience in the organization, and the length of service in the same position was investigated. This research was carried out with 310 scholars working at 17 different faculties on the main campus of Akdeniz University. It employed the mixed research method which uses both qualitative and quantitative techniques. Developed by researchers the "Resources of Stagnation in Career Scale" with eight sub-dimensions was administered to the faculty participating in this research. The data were analysed via the SPSS for Windows 23.0 programme. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and two-way analysis of variance tests were used in the analysis of the data. Scheffe, a post-hoc analysis test, was used to determine the source of significant interactions among the groups. According to the findings, 43.87% of the faculty participating in the study had stagnation in their career. Having a child was an important factor in the family-related reasons of stagnation, while tenure issues (problems) was the most important factor originating from the organization. The results indicate that the participants who have suffered from stagnation mostly experience this problem at the post-doctorate level. It was found that the opinions of the academic staff about the stagnation varied significantly according to the variables of gender, marital status, age, title, length of experience in the current organization, and length of experience in the same position.
