Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Life sciences graduates enjoy excellent career opportunities. Most of our graduates study for a higher degree in life sciences and many follow careers in the field, particularly in the research and management areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biomedical science, food technology, agrisciences, and pest, disease and environmental management.

Similar opportunities exist for life scientists in government and independent laboratories involved in medical research, public health, forensic investigation, disease research, conservation, and pollution. Some of our graduates also go on to work in medical careers, become teachers, or even work in the media.

Recent graduates of the Department have become:

  • Research Officer, A*STAR, Singapore

  • Television Researcher, BBC

  • Fungicide Biochemist, Syngenta

  • Analyst, Deutsche Bank

  • PhD student, Cambridge University
