Research RN pay


I have an interview at a large hospital system for a Research RN position. This would be my first time in a Research RN position (I'm currently an Emergency Dept. Nurse). I understand that salary/ pay differ depending where you are in the US. With that being said does anyone have any insight for how much I should expect to be offered for pay for western states (utah, colorado etc)? Also is this typically a salaried position or hourly. I looked on a pay scale website and it looks like the average pay/salary is between 60-70,000. Thanks for any info!
