Five Years Is Just Enough Time to Get Your Neuro Degree

The roundup of "jobs that will be hot in the next several years" includes a number of fields familiar to us, such as: computational biology, parallel programming, and genetic counseling. The post, by Rebecca Sato, also estimates salaries. Computational biologists are expected to earn $106,000 to $118,000 (again, no word on how these figures came about) -- second only to brain analysts at $180,000 to $229,000.
