Medical jobs involving molecular biology involve the study of genetics, biochemistry and cell systems. The results of these studies lead to medical and pharmaceutical breakthroughs in a number of areas.
People looking for employment opportunities in molecular biology will need to be in possession of at least a BSc in molecular biology or a directly-related discipline. However, such is the highly technical nature of this discipline, some recruitment agencies and employers will require candidates to hold a PhD or Master's degree in a similar subject. Most positions call for at least one-year's experience in molecular biology and an understanding of real-time PCR methods. Many people decide to take internships with leading research agencies in order to gain the essential experience that is required.
There are several privately-funded research agencies in the UK that provide research and development services for a wide range of purposes. However, leading pharmaceutical companies, universities and government funded research centres will often recruit scientists directly. Only applicants with a keen eye for detail and a structured approach to molecular biology will be able to find staff jobs with the UK's leading companies.
Entry-level research positions will usually include a salary of between £17,000 and £35,000. However senior, managerial positions will sometimes attract salaries of over £50,000.
