What science jobs are available

Typically, most science jobs on the market are graduate-level positions, since you need to have some knowledge of the field before you start working. If you studied a science course at uni, you can easily turn it into a graduate job. There are too many options out there for us to list them all, but let us tell you about some of our favourites. Pharmacy jobs are extremely popular, as the pharmaceutical industry keeps on growing. If you’re particularly interested in chemistry jobs, this could be the ideal field for you, whether it’s working in the lab or behind the counter at the chemist. Lab jobs in biomedical science are also a popular choice, as they teach a bunch of different skills and offer a lot of growth opportunities. One particularly interesting option is a job in forensic science. Want to be active and out in the field? This one’s for you. All of these are relatively high-paying science jobs due to the level of expertise required – an important thing to keep in mind when you’re searching.

There are also some more abstract science jobs on offer, different to the typical lab work in a white coat you might be thinking of. The demand for science jobs in sports is always on the up, thanks to the massive industry they’re a part of. Athletes want to perform at their peak, so they need someone to run the tests and crunch the numbers to see how they can do that. Speaking of number crunching, if that’s your thing, you might want to consider some computer or data science jobs. Or maybe you want to share your love of science with others. In that case, have a look at some of the teaching jobs in science we have. There’s no limit to what you can do for a science job, so there’s noting stopping you from applying for one today.

Haven’t quite got that degree in the bag yet? Still working away at uni but want to build your experience (and your bank account while you’re at it?). Don’t worry, you still have the chance to bag a great science job that’ll add to your CV. Plenty of labs offer internships and jobs to research assistants, so you could easily gain some hands-on knowledge in your chosen field of study. If you want something that’s a bit more dynamic and engaging, we’ve got you covered too. Part-time jobs in science are great for building skills while you earn a bit of cash. Why not get a job in a science museum, where you’d spend your free time teaching people about cool concepts and exciting experiments? On the other hand, maybe you’d rather something a bit more on the chill side, that you could do from the comfort of your sofa. Remote science jobs are becoming more and more popular, and involve tasks like data entry and analysis. Is that more your thing? Check out all our work-from-home jobs in science to find the one that best fits what you’re looking for.
