Science jobs are expected to grow at an annual rate that is 13% higher than other industries! Science Career Profiles Brandon Alexander Packaging Engineer CSL Behring, Kankakee, IL BS in Packaging, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI I research, develop, test and make packaging parts. I perform packaging assessments, quality complaint evaluations and packaging tests. What I like most about my job is that I am able to improve how long it takes to make packages and the quality of packaging for existing products. My advice to you? Gain as much experience in as many fields as possible. The more you know, the more opportunities you have to find a career. Carey Mathesius Research Scientist-Nutritionist DuPont Pioneer, Ankeny, IA BS in Animal Science, University of Illinois, Champaign, IL; MS in Animal Nutrition, Iowa State University, Ames, IA I evaluate potential nutritional changes to food and feed crops modified to enhance their nutritional value and provide resistance to insects or tolerance to herbicides. Agriculture has a huge impact on society as we develop plant products and tools to help feed the growing world population with shrinking land resources. My advice to you? Be open to opportunities and to diversify yourself. Learn techniques and tools that will get you in the door, and build relationships with folks who will help you to develop new skills to further your career.

5 Science Career Profiles Science Career Profiles Margaret Biddle Senior Scientist Astellas, Skokie, IL BS in Chemistry, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL; PhD in Organic Chemistry, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI; Postdoctoral Fellowship, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL Ilze Kurins Antons Senior Director, US Regulatory Affairs Lundbeck LLC, Deerfield, IL BS in Entomology, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN; MS in Entomology, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH I am a medicinal chemist at Astellas. I design and make molecules to test their impacts on the immune system. Working in human health allows you the opportunity to not only solve problems and be creative, but it allows you to help others in the process. I find that aspect of my work to be incredibly rewarding. Science is everywhere and is responsible for so many of the experiences and innovations that we enjoy in our lives. I m biased of course, but I don t think there are many fields as exciting as science today. Emma Tevaarwerk DeCosta Product Manager, New Product Development NanoInk, NanoFabrication Systems Division, Skokie, IL BS in Materials Science & Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA; PhD in Materials Science, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI My group is responsible for maintaining drug product registrations for our company that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Once drugs are approved by the FDA, there are tough reporting requirements to make sure they are still safe and effective. We keep the product labeling up to date, especially with the latest safety information. We also review and approve the advertising and promotion that our company creates to make sure that the messages are within the legal boundaries and are supported by good scientific evidence. This part of my job takes not only good science, but good negotiating skills, because you have to keep everyone in line with the regulations and offer good alternative solutions to their messaging when needed. My advice to you? Be proactive about internships and mentoring programs so you can really evaluate an area of interest. These will also help you get into colleges due to having experience as well as recommendations. I manage people, suppliers and problems to create a final product that people use to research the growth of stem cells. At NanoInk we make tools that write at the nanoscale, a scale roughly ten times the size of an atom. My advice to you? Don t be scared to try. Follow what makes you excited or curious, and don t look at the stereotypical career paths. You can make your own career. Anything is possible, and the ability to think analytically can take you many places.

6 Notes You have read the profiles of different professionals in the life sciences industry, and by now you have discovered that not everyone who works in science companies is a scientist. You know that science industries are seeking talented individuals with all kinds of interests and backgrounds legal, finance, business, government, engineering, customer service, human resources, community relations, education and even art! Science industry employment is stable and science careers PAY MORE. According to the 2012 Battelle Memorial Institute report, the average annual salary of biosciences workers was $82,000. That s more than $36,000 above the average salary of other private-company employees. Your dream job may or may not involve wearing a lab coat every day, but you can go to to find a dream job in the life sciences industry that is just right for you!
