Employment Avenues

Genetic research, new drug development, improved plant and agricultural techniques spell success for the biological scientists. Ongoing research in the field of medical sciences provides a further impetus to the need for qualified biological scientists. Biologists with advanced qualifications should find exciting opportunities in specialities such as genetics, cellular biology, and biochemical research. Since the job of most biological scientists is on long term research projects the economic downturn does not generally influence job opportunities. Many biological scientists work in the research and development departments of industries concerned with pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, and chemicals. Graduate biological scientists work as apprentices or technicians after receiving hands on training.

Study and Training Requirements

The goal of life sciences is to understand the living world and to use this knowledge for the benefit of mankind. The enormous variety of living organisms and the complexity of what goes in them, has led to the development of many specializations that focus on particular part of the whole area.

Biological scientists must have an above average aptitude in the understanding of biological, chemical and mathematical concepts. Most of the job is of observation and systematic study hence a systematic approach coupled with patience and curiosity are essential to sustain one through long periods of research and study. A good approach to team work ensures success in projects where a number of scientists are engaged.
