Inaugural ABRF Compensation Survey Report

The ABRF Career Development Committee is excited to share the first ABRF Compensation Survey Report to provide unique, valuable benchmarking information for Core facilities.  With responses from close to 200 Core facilities across 26 states, representing thousands of Core professionals, this new report represents an important first effort to measure the prevailing compensation within the Core community. 

Many ABRF member institutions continue to cope with significant staff recruitment and retention challenges.  This report enables members to determine how competitive their salary and benefits programs are within their region and among similar size institutions. 

The report includes regional and institution-based compensation information for:

  • Core Directors
  • Core Managers
  • Staff Scientists
  • Core Administrators
  • Research Staff (Entry/Intermediate/Senior)
  • Bioinformaticians

In addition to salary data, the ABRF Compensation Survey Report includes comparative information on:

  • incentive compensation
  • benefits, including:
    • health insurance
    • life and disability insurance
    • deferred compensation (401k; 403b)
    • tuition reimbursement
  • staff turnover (2021-2022)
  • outlook for hiring
  • recruitment/retention challenges

This eagerly awaited report will be available to all ABRF members.  Non-members will be able to purchase the report for just $99.00.
