"Salary is based on what your output if something does not sell in market you might not get profit for it. same here we work in plants fundamental metabolomics which might not be lucrative to the industry in the beginning but in the long run these are going to stay. I would like to work with challenges with a salary based on my experiences. I will look for both challenges and salaries. Jobs' satisfaction is important and salary may not decide jobs. I was working as $31000 per anum in the beginning but later find the offer as 45000 with natural product discovery having job satisfaction. My current job is in fact equal to what others postdoc get."
