Biology and Life Sciences

Industry Outlook

The outlook for careers in biological sciences is generally positive. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts steady growth for the biology and life science industry through 2024. For instance, employment in the fields of biochemistry and biophysics, which study the chemical and physical properties of organisms, is anticipated to grow by 8 percent through 2024, which is as fast as the average for all occupations. Agricultural and food scientists, who work to ensure safe and efficient food production, should experience average job growth in this period. Slower than average employment is expected for zoologists and wildlife biologists, who study animals and wildlife behavior.
