Abstract The paper examined the salary difference among science Doctorates for 2004 and 2006.The variation of certain factors such as experience, gender, marital status, Publication, Presentation, hiring and difference in sciences faculties (like natural sciences, social sciences etc.) leads to differences in salary at the end of the doctorate program. The model found out that male and female have different salary due factors such as early marriage, child bearing and household responsibility reduced female salary than its male counterpart even though they all have the same Doctorates. By using factors influences the salary difference, we see despite the entire above determinant, geographic region also play roles for salary difference among sciences doctorate. For example, African pays more economics student than Medical student, but we can see American pays more on Medical students than Economics student. Overall, the result found out that doctorate candidates completed in 2004 there is statistically evidence that there will be salary differences than candidates graduated in 2006.
