I see a new Staff Scientist opening posted this week for Breakthrough Listen. Applicant is expected to have extensive experience with GPU ­accelerated high­ speed digital signal processing. Looks like they are beefing up for the new Parkes Array data that is expected soon.
Project Scientist Step I-III

Wonder if the new staff will have anything to do with the day-to-day running of the project servers.

I wouldn't expect any new staff brought in for Breakthrough Listen to be involved with the day to day actives of SETI@home. It has had the opposite effect so far.

Yes, I sort thought that after Breakthrough Listen purloined Matt and I think that most of Jeff's time is involved with that project too.

I would think that in private industry qualifications like that would get you closer to 1/2 a million a year. It is a shame we do not value the sciences more. I hope they find someone qualified and energetic.
I did not mean to imply that a PhD itself made this difference, I meant that in private industry one could make a lot more money.

In the same way, any lights and radio waves are not supposed to be the same either.
