Careers of former students

To get a detailed picture of the careers and labor market for our Master´s students after graduation we contacted all former students who graduated 2011-2014. We managed to get information about 88% of these alumni (151 in Biology, 154 in Molecular Biology and 24 in Bioinformatics).

• 158 (48 %) had PhD-positions at universities in Sweden or abroad

• 133 (40 %) were employed and worked with biology/molecular biology/bioinformatics at e.g. companies, universities, governmental agencies or municipalities

• 16 (5 %) were employed, but did not work directly within the sectors of biology/molecular biology/bioinformatics

• 13 (4 %) were taking further education

• 9 (3 %) were unemployed at the time of the investigation

For more details about career and labor market go to Biology, Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics, respectively.
