Are you comfortable negotiating fora higher salary or are you worried it could backfire on you?

To my own detriment, I have never done this. When I see a job that pays $45-60K I just assume you start at $45 and work your way up to $60K. But I have been burned MANY times by finding out newer workers are making the same or more than me! They "negotiated" it...and they don't necessarily have more experience than I do. So the next time I plan to negotiate. Even if they say no, it is worth a try. I think for some HR managers, you are seen as weaker if you don't at least ask.
