Last year I hired a Histologist and started him at $54,500 a year.
It seemed a little steep at the time, but it really improved our research productivity and helped me sleep at night to have a organized person who really, really knew their stuff focussing on that bit of the work--so I didn't have to.
I've decided it is unreasonable to expect to be able to do science on the cheap, and my strategy now for recruting and retaining the best workers is--pay them!
