MICHAEL HEYLIN, C&EN WASHINGTON

As of the week of Oct. 7 last year, inexperienced new bachelor's-level chemistry graduates who had received their degrees between July 2001 and June 2002 and who had taken full-time permanent jobs had a median salary of $31,000. This salary was down by $1,200 from the median for the year-earlier graduating class. For new master's-level chemistry graduates, the median was $45,000, up $2,000 for the year, and for new Ph.D.s, it was $67,500, down $2,000. Inexperienced graduates are those with less than 12 months of technical work experience prior to graduation.
