expected salary as scientist

Hi All,

I just got an offer for a permanent scientist position in Doha (field: computer science). I will be visiting Doha next week to discuss about this position, but I have no clue what is the minimum salary I should get there.

I am french, have a Ph.D. in computer science from France, and have 4 years experience after my Ph.D.

Do you know what should be the minimum salary that I should get?

Thanks a lot,
Jorge

While I can't give you a specific number, since every post in Doha seems unique, I can give you the rules of thumb I would use: Your base salary should probably be about 30% higher than you would expect for the same job in your home country. This is the guideline the foreign universities use. Your job should either provide housing, have a generous housing allowance (the rents here are very high) or you should have a higher salary to account for the local cost of living. For example, the foreign universities include approximately $45,000 US annually for housing costs or provide housing directly. As with any job offer, of course, it comes down to what will make it worthwhile for you to move yourself here and will cover your expected expenses here besides. If you have children, check out the cost of education at the local schools and find out whether your job offers an education allowance for them. Best of luck!
