ProClinical is a specialist in recruiting for jobs at biotechnology companies and have a wide range of vacancies ranging from biotech start-ups to leading biotechnology and biopharmaceutical giants.
Types of jobs in biotechnologyBiotechnology jobs often have a heavier focus on scientific & laboratory research. Typical jobs at biotechnology companies include scientist roles such as biological/chemical technician, biochemist, biophysicist and microbiologist, all of which either study the microorganisms that cause disease, or the chemistry and physics that occurs within cells and the biological processes of diseases.
Biologic drugs, like pharmaceutical drugs, follow a similar life-cycle meaning that you will also find biotechnology related jobs in areas such as clinical research, regulatory affairs, quality assurance/control and manufacturing.
Working in the biotechnology industry will expose individuals to ground-breaking techniques in treating disease such as gene therapy, DNA sequencing, and RNA interference. These help to deepen our understanding of the mechanisms of disease and biologic drugs bring us closer to uncovering new approaches to treatment.
