Salaries are determined by years of relevant experience, based on satisfactory performance. (Those who do not perform satisfactorily are assisted in exploring other career opportunities.) One year of additional experience is given for each year of medical residency and relevant postdoctoral experience, up to a maximum of five years; for physicians, this credit is awarded only if the MD degree was obtained from an accredited medical school (as defined by the California Board of Medicine).

Starting postdoctoral scholars who live greater than 50 miles from Gladstone will receive a one-time relocation/personal setup allowance of $2,000 as a lump sum, paid on the first paycheck. Postdocs who live and relocate within 50 miles of Gladstone will receive a $1,000 relocation/personal setup allowance as a lump sum, paid on the first paycheck.
