Go West young physicists… and go with the doctors. That is the underlying message of a membership survey conducted by the American Institute of Physics, which found that physicists working in Pacific states earn 10% more than colleagues in the rest of the United States. Those working in the West North Central states take home 16% less than the norm, AIP reported. At the same time, the survey revealed that physicists working in health care ranked at the top of the pay ladder, while academics hung onto the low rung: physicists and engineers associated with medicine earn roughly $77,000 per year, while those associated with four-year colleges and universities take home about $45,000.
