Length of Training/Requirements
Many jobs in biotechnology are available with and without training. Several entry-level technician positions require an Associates or Bachelors degree. A biotechnologist with a bachelor’s degree can work in a non-research facility. A biotechnologist with a master’s degree can work in applied research and product development or in a supervisory position in product design and development.
