2013 Salary Survey

–Thanks to Stephen Kwok at the Tufts Laser Cytometry Flow Core at Tufts Medical School for conducting a flow cytometry salary survey last year, the results were posted to the Purdue list but have since been removed, so we are posting it here for anyone that is interested. I’ll also link it from the “Job Board” page.

2013 Flow Cytometry Survey

–There is a new category in the menu bar for “Humor” so that the feed does not end up with jokes overwhelming the “scholarly” posts or announcements. Feedback appreciated!
