University teachers are a fundamental component for the research and teaching activities development. For this reason it is important for the Ministry of research and policy makers of the Universities to adopt strategic policies of recruitment and retirement of the academic personnel in order to improve the turn-over, to satisfy the needs of planning of research and teaching activities, as well as to improve the efficiency of the related economic activities. In this work we propose a depiction of the evolution of the Italian academic staff from 1988 to 2008 years, and provide a perspective of this evolution for the next five years. To do that we implement a multistate modeling using information such as sex, age, length of service, job position, academic branch and salaries, provided from Ministry of Research and Italian Consortium of Universities (CINECA)
