I am going to be starting a job working in an academic laboratory at a school in Western NY as a lab tech, and was offered 32k salary. I have a BS in Med lab science and have been working in clinical research for the past three years since school. Negotiating them to go higher has not been very successful so I’m hoping to get a sense whether this is a fair salary for my experience? I’ll be cutting my salary more than in half from my job in clinal research but trying to get into PhD program.

$32K is not a fair salary for a NY licensed Lab Tech ANYWHERE in the country. Are you a NY licensed Lab Tech. I’m a recruiter specifically for Medical Lab Techs.

Not a licensed lab tech, although with my education I am eligible to take a licensing exam. Just a lab tech in an academic research lab

Hi,
I am reaching out for clarification, is this position part of the PhD program you’re entering, or separate employment? I’m asking because if you have clinical lab tech credentials and are open to getting a NYS license you could be getting paid significantly more working in an acute care clinical lab. If this is something that interests you let me know and I can provide you with contact information.

This is separate employment, not part of PhD program. I do not hold NYS lab tech accreditation required to work in hospital labs

Are you talking about working at Harvard? Wouldn’t having that on you resume be invaluable?
You can do anything for a limited amount of time. I would do it.
