Astrobiologists

The U.S. Department of Labor doesn't specifically track employment of astrobiologists, but the related profession biological technicians will grow about as fast as the average for all occupations, and employment for biochemists and biophysicists will grow as fast as the average through 2024. Despite these predictions, it is important to remember that astrobiology is still a very small field. Competition will be stiff for top positions. For example, Ph.D.'s looking for research positions will find strong competition for a limited number of openings. In addition, certain government jobs as well as government funding for research may also be less plentiful. A recession or shift in political power can cause the loss of funding for grants and the decline of research and development endeavors.
