    Can you elaborate on the question? Fresh phds can get hired in as low as lvl 61 which is data scientist 2. Other than that expect the same levels and trajectory as engineers

      Yup. Is it fair to say that Senior (level 63) is a minimum of 4 years of experience, or 2 with PhD? More typically it is higher than that, maybe 6 years without PhD and 3-4 with one.

      The only thing specific about ds trajectory is that 61 is the minimum level for a PhD with no experience. I'd probably hire a phd with 2-3 years experience as senior.

      Are you sure that's true across different orgs? A friend of mine just got offered level 60 data scientist as a PhD fresh grad in WDG, should he negotiate for 61?

      Does it matter if the subject of the PhD is not CS? My friend does his PhD in a non-CS hard science.
