comment Why are SW engineering interviews disproportionately difficult (vs. research interviews)?
@ Ethel: If you look on glassdoor.com, where people post their salaries anonymously, you can see that a researcher position pays about $10K to $20K/year more than a comparable SW engineer (same location, same field). Anecdotally, I know my salary is about $25K/year more than my other friends who graduated with a CS M.S. degree from my grad school at about the same time. And it's not just the salary; I've seen that PhDs have higher career trajectories than those without. I do not have direct evidence, but I've seen that PhDs are more easily hired into CTO/VP levels.

comment What is the difference between these senior software engineer titles?
thanks for the feedback. Regarding "member of technical staff," my understanding (as the original poster of this question) is that it's used to represent a high position, usually in research. The problem is that I don't know how it ranks to the other titles, which is why I asked. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Member_of_Technical_Staff
