Life with a B.S. in Biology

Postby stacey » Fri Feb 25, 2005 8:56 am

In about 12-18 months, I am scheduled to loose my job with a beverage manufacturing plant. I have a B.S in Biology and have a great deal of experience in Micro and Sanitation.
Can you please tell me if there is any "hope" for me in another career? I would like to go into research but do not know "where" to start looking for jobs. I live in the Memphis Tn.

Thank you in advance for any advice..

With a BS you should be able to get an academic research position quite easilly, even if you have little research experience.

Since you're in Memphis, consider a job at St. Judes - very highly regarded in biomedical research. You should be able to get a research assistant position. Take a look at their Careers website.

You can also look at positions at any of the medical schools or universities in the area. The University of Memphis comes to mind. Is there also a University of Tennessee, Memphis branch?

"Is there also a University of Tennessee, Memphis branch"

UT's med school is in Memphis along with its biomedical research Ph.D programs
