Biochemists are highly trained scientists who conduct extensive tests and studies on the chemical composition of living organisms. These specialists typically work with government agencies, and research departments of universities, pharmaceutical companies, and private corporations. In all workplaces, their main goal is to establish how to improve existing products, discover new products and find solutions to problems such as disease control and environmental protection.
It takes advanced education to become a biochemist. Anyone wishing to pursue a career in this field must be prepared to put in years of hard work to obtain a doctorate degree. Anything short of a doctorate degree will qualify you for very limited job opportunities and entry-level salaries. Biochemists must have strong research, problem-solving, analytical and written communication skills.
Why do you want to become a biochemist? What makes you a good fit for this role? Have you done anything that demonstrates your passion and aptitude for this job?
