Science Jobs

Science Job Overview

Science jobs in the healthcare industry encompasses a wide range of specialties. They span into disciplines like life science, veterinary science, physiological science, clinical engineering and bioinformatics. Most of these careers fall under the umbrella of biomedical sciences, which include the following specialties:
  • Audiology
  • Biochemistry
  • Biophysics
  • Cytology
  • Epidemiology
  • Genetics
  • Microbiology
  • Pathology
  • Phlebotomy
  • Radiation health
  • Virology
The settings of healthcare science jobs vary widely by field, but hospitals, doctor's offices, laboratories, universities, state and local governments and private firms are the most common working environments. When conducting research, healthcare scientists may venture into the field to gather samples, monitor conditions or conduct interviews.

Science Job Education Requirements

The educational requirements of science jobs vary by field, but most require at least a bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline. For example, biological technicians, microbiologists and zoologists can enter their fields with a bachelor's degree. However, positions like medical scientist and biochemist require a doctoral or professional degree. If you don't want to pursue a bachelor's or graduate degree but still want a healthcare science job, you can also find positions that just require an associate's degree. For instance, radiologic and MRI technologists, sonographers, veterinary technicians, medical laboratory technicians and phlebotomists may only need associate's degrees for many positions.

Science Job Market

Again, the outlook for science jobs will depend on the field you enter. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most positions in the biomedical sciences will experience faster than average growth in the next decade. An aging population, widespread chronic and infectious disease, and increased use of pharmaceuticals will all contribute to employment growth in this sector.

Significant disparities in expected growth rates exist among specialties in the field, however. For instance, while sonographers and phlebotomists are both expected to experience faster than average job growth, dental laboratory technicians and zoologists/wildlife biologists will see slower than average growth in coming years.

Science Job Salary Information

Salaries for science jobs will depend upon the educational attainment and experience of the employee, as well as the setting and geographic location. In general, healthcare science jobs that demand advanced degrees pay better. Even positions with the same educational requirements, however, can have vastly different pay. For instance, nuclear medicine technologists make an average of $70,180 per year, while dental lab technicians make $33,070 per year, even though both require an associate's degree. Some scientific positions, such as some clinical engineering and health sciences positions, also require licensure, and those positions tend to pay more.
