Employment  

Although particularly relevant to those looking for a career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, this course will also equip you for a career in research, teaching and many other professions including cosmetic science, animal health, food science, medical laboratory research, patent law, scientific journalism and health and safety.Many students have progressed onto research and studying for a PhD (working in the areas of biofuels, cancer research and drug synthesis). Some of these have progressed to PhD here at Salford but we have recent alumni pursuing PhDs globally.We have recently had students find employment as research assosiates (Liverpool University, John Innes Centre), technical roles (University of Salford) and with pharmaceutical companies (e.g. Cyprotex) both in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
