A bachelor’s degree in one of the fields of biology is sufficient for advanced technician jobs in the medical field, lab/research assistant positions, or testing and inspection jobs. You’ll work as part of a big project team. Large industries that deliver health care products seek biology graduates for manufacturing marketing and sales positions.
But for other positions in the scientific field, for example, jobs in management, sales, inspection, service, and some in applied research, you need to have an advanced degree. You may be involved in planning and administrating programmes for testing food and drugs or directing activities at zoos or botanical gardens. You may test and inspect foods, drugs, and other products or write for technical publications. After a few years of experience, you may work as a consultant to business firms or to the government. A Ph.D. is needed for college teaching, independent research, and for advancement to administrative positions.
