applications scientist (salary)
Hi all, I need to come up with an idea of my potential salary. The job is in a high-tech industry with marketing tasks, I have 8 years of experience in academia on the top of phd, mba from a good place. I read a couple of threads about salaries of scientists in pharma and people mentioned 120k as the upper limit. I checked that ETH offers 95k to postdocs with just 3y experience, someone just got a permanent scientist position in Basel 120k. I expect that my price in academia is ~110-120k. Industries usually pay ~20% more. Based on this a starting negotiation point could be easily 140-150k. Then I am confused. Could someone comment on that.
