Scientists Calculator
The Scientists Salary Calculator uses the data collected in the biannual Professional Scientists Remuneration Survey Report – making it the most up to date resource for calculating your true market value.

You can select a range of analytical categories, including:

  • years of experience;
  • sector;
  • qualification; and
  • geographic location.

In addition to your market value, the calculator can also return valuable comparative market info, such as where in the market a given base salary lies, and in which percentile of the market.

What is the average rate of pay for your profession? And how does your salary stack up against industry standards? Professional Scientists Australia (PSA) takes the guesswork out of these questions with a range of reports and calculators. We can help benchmark your pay packet, work out the appropriate remuneration for your role and industry, and make the case for a pay rise.
