Employment Opportunities in the Biosciences

The phrase "The 21st century will be the century of biology" has been stated so frequently it is almost a cliche. Nonetheless, it does appear to be heading in that direction. With the decoding of the human genome and the promise of understanding how biological systems develop, we are likely to see more and more bioscience research breakthroughs and the associated job spin-offs that result from these discoveries. Our PhD students in Integrated Biosciences will be involved with both the basic and applied aspects of these new discoveries. Job opportunities in the field of bioscience have dramatically increased since the turn of the century, and this trend will only accelerate in the years to come.

Below are a subset of companies that specialize in basic bioscience research and bioscience products. They range in size from small start-up companies (e.g., nAscent Biosciences) to huge international corporations (e.g., Merck). These companies, and others like them, will provide a wealth of opportunities for graduates with integrated bioscience training.
