What the BioHub Maryland Career Roadmap?

The career roadmap is a “grid map” that lists jobs within an industry and outlines their required qualifications and salary range for employment. This visual overview provides information about career opportunities available in Maryland’s biotechnology industry and the education and experience needed for career advancement or entry into a particular occupation.

Explore the Career Roadmap

Your career in biotech starts here! On this page, you can look through a list of biotech positions that are sorted by required education level. Each position includes a job description, required education/work experience, salary range, and link to any open positions. 

Job titles, position descriptions, and requirements may differ from employer to employer. For example, one company’s Research Associate position may have different requirements than another company. To create this career map, similar positions were compiled and a “typical” job title, position description and requirements were created. 

Hands-on experience is highly valued in the biotechnology industry. Applicants who have relevant experience and less formal education may compete well with those with higher education levels and little experience. For those with advanced training or experience in the biotechnology business, an expanded career map with more positions can be found on the online career map hosted by BioBuzz (www.biobuzz.io). For careers in healthcare, visit the Baltimore Alliance for Careers in Healthcare at www.baltimorealliance.org or call 443.931.3076. 

Careers in biotechnology typically fall into one of the following four categories with various education and experience levels.

  • Research & Discovery
  • Drug/Device Development & Clinical Studies 
  • Manufacturing & Supply Chain Distribution
  • Sales & Technical Support

Who Uses Career Maps?

Anyone can benefit from career mapping. Whether you have yet to attain your high school diploma/GED or have a college degree, career maps provide a pathway to rewarding careers in biotechnology.
