I am re-writing several job descriptions and can use some input. I need
titles of similar positions at other institutions so we can research
salaries. What are your titles (and if you can share) salary ranges for
these please?

1) We have Gross Room techs who cut and stain frozens, accession all
specimens, prepare cassettes, call about all improper submissions,
prepare grossing stations, cleanup after everyone, handle maintenance of
cryostat and cassette labelers, ordering, scheduling, etc. Our LAB TECH
title just doesn't seem good enough to cover tasks and stress level of
the gross room.

2) We have morgue/forensic/autopsy positions (3). Two of them assist in
autopsies, prepare all autopsy rooms, assist in forensic collection,
dump hospital specimens after appropriate time, order, assist in
training of PA's and residents, body removal from the floor, release of
bodies to funeral homes and ME cases, etc.

3)  I am hiring a 3rd to oversee the autopsy area(since we will be
doubling volume), do all the above tasks in #2 plus scheduling, interact
w/ removal services, attend CORE, gift registry meetings, etc. We will
have a large ME volume (apx 500/yr) so this will be coordinated also.


Any input would be greatly appreciated.


p.s. We are also looking for a Technical Specialist in Histology.. BS or
BA... HTL... QIHC or QIHC eligible. Our salary is very competitive.
