Advancement Prospects

Advancement for molecular and cellular biologists depends on the individual's level of education. Those with a doctorate may teach in colleges, conduct independent research, and hold top-level administrative and management jobs. Those with a master's degree may work in applied research. Biologists with years of experience in the field may advance to become project chief, directing teams of biologists. They may leave positions in laboratory settings for administrative and management jobs in corporations. Those that develop professional expertise move from technical assignments into roles in which they interpret biological knowledge.
