Top definition
The unspoken practice of heaping unreasonable amounts of the academic grunt work that no higher-ranking faculty will deign to do upon adjunct professors and then either severely underpaying them for their labor or paying them in "experience." Appropriate credit for this labor is typically withheld.
"Did you hear that Ms. Smith is doing all of the research for Dr. Collins's book while he gets the credit?"
"Why would she agree to that?!"
"Dunno, man. I'll bet he told her she could have a line on her CV or maybe he's paying her in peanuts under the table. Maybe she's just hoping it gives her the illusion of job security."
"That's some real adjunctsploitation right there."
