      Not when you are in academics. But if you work for companies there is a decent enough salary.

      If I find a cure for Cancer then yes! My starting salary as a Post doctoral researcher is better than most starting salaries but I would have to work very hard and go further in academia before I start earning more money.

      At the moment the money is enough to live off as I’m still a student but once I start doing post PhD work it will be more than enough.
