Advice on careers in Industrial Fermentation

As part of our biotechnology campaign we are reviewing a selection of careers that are available to you if you are considering a career in the biotech industry. Today we are looking at careers in Industrial Fermentation.

Within the life science sector the use of industrial fermentation processes is on the increase as more and more CRO’s (contract research organisations) or CMO (contract manufacturing organisations) use it to develop and manufacture recombinant proteins.

With a career in Fermentation you will have the option of working across the globe as many companies as the processes are used everywhere; however in the UK most hubs are located in:

  • Central Belt of Scotland
  • Teesside in North East England
  • Liverpool in North West England
  • Cambridge and Slough in South East England
