Most full-time web developers straight out of community college get paid roughly double what is being offered here. If you want a one-man-band who can also design databases and provide graphics for a bearable UI, it will be closer to triple. Throw in 'must have a PhD' and, well, its a good thing you're researching ageing because I imagine you will be waiting a very long time :)

In all seriousness though, this is a huge endeavour. You are probably better off looking at cheap freelance work, hiring someone looking for work experience (and dropping the PhD requirement), or going back to the university and asking for a lot more funding.
