This includes more than 250 biotechnology healthcare products and vaccines as well as the agricultural biotechnology used by more than 13.3 million farmers around the world. Within the industry, professionals find a wide variety of employment opportunities. The following are among the highest paying according to recent data from a major pay-aggregating website.
The actual annual salary for any biotechnology job will vary based on a number of factors. These include industry (pharmaceutical or manufacturing, for example), company size, geographic location, and the professional’s experience and educational level. However, the last salary report released says that earnings are rising throughout the biotechnology sector. Continued economic improvements have likely already led to additional salary increases.
