hi phil_mcr,

thanks a lot for your reply.

What do you mean by 140%? your suggestion is very useful! the previous contract is 100% and I will ask my boss to see if he want to change it to 801%, thanks for your help!
801% would be an awful lot of work!

Ask them to put 80% in the contract and reapply. Most PhD positions are not 100% anyway but I get the impression that you have already finished your PhD and this is a post-doc position. In which case the salary you've been offered sounds about right to me so I'm not sure what the problem is.
