Perhaps you’re looking to move into a R&D job from a supporting job such as QC, you might be looking to move into industry from academia, or perhaps you’re already working in R&D and looking to move up the ladder. Watch our video for advice on how to progress your career within Research and Development.
With the aging population in the UK and globally, there’s an increasing need for new medicines and global population rises are leading to increased demand for sustainable food sources and sustainable energy. R&D is key to solving these problems, and biotech is at the forefront of this research, which means the number and variety of vacancies will increase.
So it’s a great time to be involved with the biotech industry, with loads going on, from new biologics drugs in the pipeline and start ups producing next-generation medical devices, to sustainable food production using tissue culture and fermentation, to novel energy programmes. So, whether you’re looking to move up through a structured progression path, or just get involved with innovative new products, now is a good time to make the move.
