Biotechnology Jobs

Biotechnology Job Overview

Biotechnology technicians work hard helping medical scientists complete a variety of laboratory work, experiments, studies, and tests. They often work in groups under the supervision of a biologist or other medical professional who supervises and guides them, offering feedback and other help. They have to take safety procedures very seriously because sometimes they are working with bodily fluids and other things that require workers to use extreme caution.

Biotechnology technicians usually do the following tasks on a daily basis:

  • Gather biological samples from patients, trial volunteers, and others
  • Prepare and work with biological samples, which may include food, blood, urine, or even bacteria cultures
  • Conduct their own experiments under the instruction or supervision of scientists
  • Make records of all work that is performed, such as observations and procedures
  • Analyze and interpret the results of studies, tests, and experiments
  • Write reports that detail the results of tests or studies

Employees who are fine working both solo and on teams are needed in this position. Those who excel at concentrating on one task for long periods of time will likely enjoy being a biotechnology technician.

Biotechnology Job Education Requirements

Most employers require that biotechnology job candidates have at least a bachelor’s degree in biology or a related field. A biotechnology technician needs to acquire laboratory experience as part of their education, and they should work hard to hone those related skills. Aspiring biology technicians should take as many biology classes that emphasize lab work as possible. If they are able to demonstrate advanced skills, they are more likely to land competitive jobs.

Biotechnology Job Market

There are currently around 80,200 Americans employed as biotechnology technicians, and more than 8,000 jobs will be created between now and 2022. This 10 percent job growth means that biotechnology technicians are in high demand. The anticipated increase in biotechnology research is expected to increase the demand for workers in the field. Applicants who have extensive laboratory experience will have the best chances for the most desirable positions. Some others choose to go into other healthcare professions, including medical record technician coder jobs and physician liaison jobs.

Biotechnology Job Salary Information

The average annual salary for biotechnology technicians is $39,750. The top employees in biotechnology jobs earn more than $64,880 per year, while the low-end average salary is $25,280. Employees who continue their education and gain significant lab experience can work their way up to higher salaries. Biotechnology technicians who worked in fields like chemical manufacturing and research and development typically earned more than those who worked in testing laboratories or the federal government.
