HUMAN BIOSCIENCES: CAREER OPTIONS
Information provided by our Careers & Employability Service.
Mandy, our Careers Adviser for human biosciences, says:
"Biomedical and clinical science are popular areas with many specialist options, e.g. immunology, haematology, genetics and cytology. Many others will look at teaching or research. Other options could include, for example, forensic science, crime scene analysis, biotechnology, food science and areas such as microbiology and pharmacology.
Biologists will often want to use their subject but not necessarily in a laboratory situation so some graduates look to careers in, for example, medical sales, scientific journalism or publishing or areas such as patent/trade mark/regulatory work or information science. Those prepared to look at further full-time training may be attracted to careers in medicine, dentistry, nursing and areas such as occupational therapy, physiotherapy, dietetics or complementary therapies."
