Careers

Many postgraduate students of the Biological Sciences programme offered by the University of Bristol  choose a higher degree because they enjoy their subject and subsequently go on to work in a related area.

Postgraduate study is often a requirement for becoming a researcher, scientist, academic journal editor and for work in some public bodies or private companies. Around 60 per cent of biological sciences doctoral graduates continue in research.

Academic research tends to be contract-based with few permanent posts, but the school has a strong track record in supporting the careers of young researchers by helping them to find post-doctoral positions or develop fellowship applications.
