Bioinformatics Specialists

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts the employment of all biological scientists not separately listed (including bioinformatics specialists) will experience little or no change through 2024. The completion of the Human Genome Project has allowed scientists to compile a vast amount of genetic information and has increased interest in bioinformatics. Information technology continues to play a key role in biotechnology and pharmaceutical research and development. These trends will create some demand for bioinformatics specialists to help gather, study, and utilize this information for the good of society. Bioinformatics specialists with advanced degrees will have the best employment prospects. Competition for these attractive, well-paying jobs in the bioinformatics field will be progressively intense.
