AnuMahayMrs.NewmillerBiology19October 2017Part 2: Career in BiologyThe career that I chose in biology that interests meto research was a biotechnologist. A biotechnologist uses biological organismsto create and improve products and processes in fields such as agriculture,environmental conservation, and medicine.
Biotechnologists study the genetic,chemical and physical attributes of cells, tissues, and organisms, and identifyindustrial uses for this knowledge. In this essay, I will discuss six differentthings that have information about biotechnologists. The six things are theeducation that is required, the salary, the special training, the duties ofthis job, the demands for this type of job, and then some pictures detailingwhat a biotechnologist does.First, the type of degree that is required to be abiotechnologist is that the person would need to pursue an initial degree in afield such as chemistry or biology and then afterward go on to a master’sprogram in biotech.
The amount of time that is needed to be spent in college tobecome a biotechnologist will typically be 4 years. In this amount of time, youwill be able to earn a bachelor’s degree in biotechnology which is what youwill need to become a biotechnologist. That is the education that is requiredto become a biotechnologist.Second is the salary.
A biotechnologist’s salary wouldbe $79,939 per year. A biotechnologists normal salary is anywhere from $49,437to $110,698. Their bonus is anywhere from $1,788 to $14,786. Their profit sharingamount is anywhere from $1,965 to $10,241. Their commission is $5,028. Lastly,their total pay would be anywhere from $48,405 to $117,111. That is the salaryof a biotechnologist. Third, we have the special training to be abiotechnologist.
A biotechnologist’s special training consists of takingintegrated programs that focus on personal excellence, mindset transformation,leadership at work, effective business communication, corporate grooming,handling interview questions and having creativity in solving problems. This isthe special training that is required to become a biotechnologist. Fourth, is the duties of this job.Being a biotechnologist brings along duties. The duties of a biotechnologistare to work as research technicians.
They are able to set up instruments andlaboratory equipment that will be used to do experiments such as centrifuges,flasks, and spectrophotometers. They also are about to record data and preparereports for the leading research scientists. These are the duties of being abiotechnologist. Fifth is this the demands for thetype of job. The demands for being a biotechnologist are that the employment ofbiotechnologists will go up by 5% from 2014 to 2024, just as fast as theaverage occupations.
The demand will increase for biotechnology and medicalresearch workers and so this is why the being a biotechnologist has this kindof demand for the type of job it is. This is the demand for being abiotechnologist. Last but not least, here are somepictures detailing what a biotechnologist does: The first picture shows thatbiotechnologists study and work on DNA and different biological studies such asthat.
The second picture gives an example of am the different things thatbiotechnology has involved with it and the last picture shows thatbiotechnologists work in labs and those labs consist of doing different thingswith different materials. In conclusion, this is the main information that isneeded to know for being a biotechnologist and all the things that are needed tobe done are listed in the six things that I explained and this is what being abiotechnologist is.
