Advanced Biotech Jobs

Advanced Biotech Overview

Advanced biotechnicians are responsible for setting up, maintaining and cleaning laboratory instruments. They also gather and prepare biological specimens and conduct tests or experiments. These technicians must carefully document their work and then analyze the results. They prepare reports of their findings and may present them to their coworkers or at scientific conferences. Most advanced biotechnicians work on teams with several other scientists. They may apply findings of their experiments to product development in areas such as pharmaceuticals. Anyone wanting to work as an advanced biotechnician should have strong analytical, critical thinking, observational, communication and technical skills. They may work alongside molecular biologists, cell biologists, microbiologists and virologists.

Advanced Biotech Education Requirements

Generally, advanced biotechnicians must have at least a bachelor’s degree to gain entry into the field. Advanced degrees such as a master's or doctorate allow for increased independence to create their own research projects. Most advanced biotechnicians hold a degree in biology although related fields of study such as ecology, chemistry and physiology may also allow entry into the field.

Advanced Biotech Job Market

According to statistics, the job outlook for advanced biotechnicians is expected to grow by 10 percent between 2012 and 2022. This is about as fast as the national average for all occupations. Most job openings as advanced biotech workers will be a result of growth in the medical and agricultural fields. The environment will be another area of growth for advanced biotech, including cleanup of disaster sites and development of alternative fuel sources.

Advanced Biotech Job Salary

The median annual salary of advanced biotechnicians was $39,700 in 2012. People with advanced degrees and those working in the private sector may earn higher annual salaries than those with a bachelor's degree or who are working in government or for public colleges and universities. There will be steep competition in the advanced biotech field for the limited amount of federal funding available for research projects.
