Calling all science fanatics! Biochemists needed. Must love lasers, microscopes and high tech machines.

What does a biochemist do, exactly? Well, that depends on the area of specialization and type of laboratory they work in. But in general, biochemists study the chemistry and processes of living organisms such as bacteria, plants, animals and humans. They conduct experiments in order to address real world problems such as preventing and treating disease, or environmental issues such as determining safe, effective farming methods.

biochemistThe Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the job outlook for a biochemist should grow by about 8 percent through 2024, and it can be lucrative if you’re willing to put in the hard work. Annual salaries range from $44,220 to $149,130, but biochemists with bachelor’s and master’s degrees are considered entry level. High paid, influential leaders in the field do a deep dive into cells, proteins, molecules and much more over many years while earning their PhDs.
