The 2013 list of least stressful jobs includes -- ta-da, drum-roll and all that -- University Professor -- right at #1, ahead of seamstress/tailor, audiologist and dietician. [An addendum offers some qualifications, but still ...]
That's from the 2013 list. I wonder who all figured in the previous years' lists.

It turns out that university professors didn't even make the top 10 list in 2012 and 2011; the 2010 list includes philosophers at #7 and mathematicians at #8.
