HMPA Salary Survey

November 30, 2021

SurveyThe HMPA Advocacy Committee has detected noticeable inconsistencies in postdoc salaries across departments and institutions, and we are aware that many postdocs struggle financially. To help us advocate for better financial stability among our constituents, we ask that you participate in a ~5 minute anonymous survey. Your responses will inform future conversations between HMPA and other postdoc associations, administrative offices in various institutions, and HMS resource offices to achieve equitable pay that accounts for the high cost of living in the Boston area. To thank you for your time, at the end of the survey you will have the option to enter your contact information to participate in a raffle for a $20 gift card. Your contact information will not be linked to your previous answers, which will continue to remain anonymous. If you have further thoughts, suggestions or questions, please contact us at
