2024 Workload and Salary Surveys Are Now Open 

Your insight matters—please share your perspective on the workforce of the research ethics and oversight community by completing the 2024 IRB and IACUC Workload and Salary Surveys by June 21, 2024. Each survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and collects information on the experiences of individuals working with IRBs and IACUCs, including:  

  • Institution type/accreditation status/research type (SBER/biomedical) 

  • Funding sources 

  • Number of IRBs/IACUCs 

  • Full board meetings in the last 12 months 

  • And more! 

If you work with both IRBs and IACUCs, you may choose to respond to either or both surveys.

When the Workload and Salary Reports are complete, they will be made available to PRIM&R members and those who completed the survey (both members and nonmembers) for free. They will also be available for purchase.

2023 Workload and Salary Survey Report

As a professional involved in the world of research ethics, you work hard to understand and keep up with complex regulations, manage your day-to-day responsibilities, and keep your career on track. All of these moving parts can make it challenging to know where you stand and how the work you do compares to that of other research ethics professionals around the country.

If you are curious about how your salary, responsibilities, and professional experiences stack up against others in similar positions now, review the results of the 2023 Workload and Salary Surveys.

PRIM&R distributes two versions of this survey, one geared to professionals who work primarily with IRBs, and one for those who work primarily with IACUCs. The results of these surveys provide important insight into current trends and opportunities, which can help you to see where the field stands overall and how the work you do fits within it.

PRIM&R members and nonmembers who participated in one or both surveys can access the reports for free in the Knowledge Center. Nonmembers who did not complete either survey can purchase the reports.
