For some info on salaries (including postdoc salaries) also check:


These are median salaries, not average. I did a lot of studying when I was
looking for jbs, and there are cost of living calculators for different
cities on the web. They tell you about the average cost of a home,
average rent etc.... They also will tell you what effective change in
salary you will have.  (One thing that didn't seem factored in was daycare-
which varies widely accross the country.)

It's pretty interesting that the biological sciences are on the low end of
the median salaries.
