5 Biotech Jobs That Won't Bore You

1. Forensics DNA Analyst
This job is straight out of a crime show. Forensics DNA analysts use biotechnology to collect and analyze DNA evidence, like blood, sweat and hair. After interpreting the results of their analysis, they’re usually asked to present what they’ve found in court—either in a report or as expert witnesses.

2. Health and Safety Specialist
As a health and safety specialist, you’ll be responsible for ensuring the laboratory or manufacturing plant is safe. Since biotech involves lots of hazardous materials, this role is crucial.

While your day-to-day duties will probably involve training the staff in safety protocol, writing health and safety procedures and inspecting labs to make sure those procedures are being followed, you’ll also be responsible for helping in emergencies. From dangerous chemical spills and fires to floods and earthquakes, there’s no end to the dangerous—and exciting—situations that may arise.

3. Lab Technician
Being a lab technician means getting to work on interesting, impactful projects. For example, a lab technician working in pharmaceuticals may help scientists develop and test a new drug. In agriculture, technicians may assist in crop improvement by genetically modifying plants.

Technicians generally come into contact with hazardous (and sometimes even radioactive) chemicals. In addition, their work may involve disease-causing organisms. Translation: You won’t have very many dull days.

4. Scientist
Who wouldn’t want to be on the forefront of the biotech industry? It can be thrilling to develop life-saving products, from disease-resistant crops and biofuels to new vaccines, drugs and medicines.

Not only do biotech scientists find their work highly rewarding, they also get to collaborate with a huge variety of other disciplines. Most are members of teams that also include engineers, business managers, lab technicians (see #3!), lab assistants, research assistants, and of course, other scientists. Working with such diverse teams is both fun and engaging, scientists say.

5. Technical Service Representative
When you’re in a lab or office, it can be difficult to imagine how what you’re doing will make an impact. However, as a technical service representative, you’ll be on the product front-lines, assisting customers with the equipment, pharmaceuticals, or other supplies they’ve bought from your company.

For people who are outgoing and sociable, this is a great way to put your technical knowledge to use and help others. Plus, biotech companies usually give their service reps a lot of freedom, so you’ll be able to work relatively independently.
