Biotechnology Research Assistants

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts average employment growth for biological and agricultural technicians, and slower than average growth for chemical technicians, through 2024. Employment in the biotech industry is expected to be particularly good in the coming years. Although there has been some industry consolidation, there is still a strong need for research assistants to help scientists locate and organize information and often also assist in clinical laboratory work. Research assistants with bachelor’s or master’s degrees in biotechnology, genetics, biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and related fields will have the best job prospects.
