      The NHS has clear salary bands (everyone doing approximately the same job earns the same amount of money). I’m on Band 8A which is currently £50,952 a year.

      Similar to Michael – I’m currently at just above £44,000 a year, which I think is roughly £2700 a month after tax.

      If you choose to do a PhD and then stay in academic research, Postdoctoral salaries start at about £34000 a year depending on the university and then often increase each year. I’m currently on £39347 a year after 2 years of working in my current position at the University of Edinburgh

      I work in Bioinformatics, I have a PhD and also did Postdoc. In my current role, I get around £3200 a month (this is the amount I get but my workplace also saves some money for me every month that I will get at the end of my job term). When I teach on a couple of courses, I can make around £700 a week. Moreover, I get a month of annual leave in a year, paid sick leave and a private health insurance (it is amazing!).

      I get paid £35,000 a year, but I also get benefits (like bonuses, private health and dental insurance), so the value of it all added together is about £40,000

      My first job out of Uni was £19,500, and now I’m on around £35,000 as a Scientist. I also get private healthcare and stocks in the company I work for, so thats a nice bonus!
