Biotechnology has applications in many industries; professionals can choose to work for a variety of organizations, including government agencies, private companies, regulatory bodies, or clinical laboratories. Biotechnology employers range in size and type from small start-ups to global pharmaceutical leaders to Government-funded organizations

The Biotechnology field—and its careers—span other functional areas that are just as integral in getting a meaningful biotechnology product to market. These areas include:

  • Research and development
  • Quality assurance/regulatory affairs
  • Manufacturing
  • Clinical research
  • Government (policymaking)
  • Software engineering
  • Food, animal, and environmental science
  • Sales and technical support
  • Business management
  • Project management
