At our previous meeting, there was a strong consensus to develop a database with de-identified data on current ranges of salaries and start-up packages offered to new recruits at Assistant, Associate and Full Prof. levels. While the AAMC data are available, many in our group felt that the chairs having our own database is desirable as a good reference point. There was good discussion on whether this is approriate or not. It was also shared that this is not a new thought because the Neuroscience chairs group already has such a database. In the interest of AMSPC growing in service, I would like to revisit this topic here and hear your thoughts. If anyone is opposed to this idea, please provide your reasons. If most of us agree that this is beneficial to us as a group, I would like to move forward with logistics of collecting data anonymously and maintaining a private database accessible exclusively by the AMSPC members.
