As new drugs and treatments are developed, the demand for Biomedical Scientists and microbiologists is increasing. The world of biomedical science offers both a wide variety of roles and great rates of pay.
Medical biology careers span the spectrum of medical sciences. Since the subject area is so broad, the available career options are similarly vast. Whether your focus is on disease diagnosis and treatment, or developing a new medicine, medical biology careers are becoming increasingly important to keep up with the needs of our growing society.
Starting salaries for Biomedical Scientists in the NHS range from £22,128 to £28,746. With experience and/or specialist knowledge, you can earn a salary of £26,565 to £35,577. As a senior Biomedical Scientist, you can expect to earn £31,696 to £48,514. Salaries for consultant biomedical scientists, who have reached the top of their profession, are higher. If you're employed by the NHS, you'll generally work a standard 37.5 hour week, and a flexible approach to work is required to cover day, evening, night and weekend working.
