Chemistry & Biochemistry
Biochemistry has emerged as a highly creative and successful discipline that has developed many new technologies and broadly applies the technological advances of other disciplines.
Opportunities for students of Biochemistry:
- In view of recent advances in biochemistry, many new professions have been created for biochemistry majors.
- Those who discontinue after the B.Sc degree often find themselves working as technicians in a variety of industries, but for those who go on for their M.Sc or Ph.D, many more opportunities become possible.
- Graduates at all levels find positions in a wide variety of career areas, including forensic sciences, industrial chemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, technical sales, virology, horticulture, immunology, forestry, and so on.
- But there are more careers one might not normally associate with the field of biochemistry.
- A research assistant works in the area of biochemical research and development as part of a team.
- They may investigate new genetic tests, be involved in genetic engineering or cloning, or help with the development of new drugs or drug protocols.
- In addition to performing typical technical biochemical procedures, the research assistant analyzes data and prepares technical reports and summaries.
- Biochemical development engineers take the biochemical process developed in the laboratory and scale it up through the pilot plant stage to the full production plant.
- They help determine what instrumentation and equipment are needed and troubleshoot problems in the scale-up procedure.
- Further, there is a great demand for biotechnological experts in countless industries and sectors.
