Director Of Bioinformatics Jobs

Director of Bioinformatics Overview


A director of bioinformatics is in charge of directing and regulating a team of bioinformatic scientists towards a common goal. Bioinformatics scientists study various ways to extract, analyze, and store biological information that may be of use in the future. These scientists are responsible for many of the cloning projects of the past, as well as the Human Genome Project. A director of bioinformatics must be experienced in the field of bioinformatics in addition to having a high level of education. The career pays extraordinarily well.

Director of Bioinformatics Education Requirements


A director of bioinformatics must hold a bachelor’s degree in biology, anatomy, genetics, or a related field. It’s far more common for directors of bioinformatics to have a Ph.D. as the field is highly competitive and requires years of experience. In addition, creative thinking ability is important as is the ability to quickly make decisions with limited information.

Director of Bioinformatics Job Market


The job availability for director of bioinformatics jobs is expected to drop by 1 percent by 2022. Even so, an estimated 980 jobs are still expected to open each year. Taking an active approach to the scientific community can make obtaining a job easier because scientists with numerous publications and years of experience are in high demand. Directors of bioinformatics often conduct research into pharmaceuticals, medical technologies, and even information science.

Director of Bioinformatics Salary


Director of bioinformatics earn between $82,000 and $126,000 on average although some make as much as $262,000 in a year. The salary is based on employer and experience; highly experienced directors of bioinformatics, particularly those with numerous peer reviewed publications, are able to demand a higher wage than those who have contributed little to the scientific community.
