Pay Philosophy

Caltech attracts, recruits, and supports individuals who have the intellect, passion, energy, and courage to tackle complex problems in new ways. That’s why it’s so important to attract, motivate and retain the best and brightest employees with the skills needed to achieve Caltech’s mission. The Institute’s Compensation Program is designed to meet the needs of a dynamic and unique workforce whose focus is on education, science and engineering.

Salaries are a critical component of compensation, which is why we take into account an individual’s knowledge, skills, and abilities as it relates to the requirements of a position. In addition, we continually evaluate our salaries to ensure they remain both competitive and equitable.
