The third annual March Against Monsanto was held in close to 400 cities in more than 40 countries from the Americas to Africa and Europe. In Dublin there was a protest meeting at the Garden Of Remembrance.

Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation headquartered in Creve Coeur, Greater St. Louis, Missouri. It is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and of the herbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the Roundup brand.

Monsanto’s role in agricultural changes, biotechnology products, lobbying of government agencies, and history as a chemical company have made the company controversial.

Opportunities In The Biotechnology Sector

by infomatique

A biotechnology career is based on food science, agriculture, medicine and biology. A number of institutions in the country offer a degree in cell and tissue technologies and cover topics such as genetic engineering. Biotechnology is supported by a number of additional branches of study and these include genetics, environmental science, agriculture, computing and environmental science. Professionals in biotechnology jobs are engaged in applying the latest molecular techniques in a bid to solve current environmental and industrial problems.

It has been observed that as many as 85% of biotechnology graduates are absorbed in full time positions within six months of their undergraduate course completion. As many as 90% of them have managed to bag jobs directly connected to their field of study. These biotech jobs are spread across a wide variety of fields including the health sector, technical positions, clinical jobs, product development, hospital laboratory jobs and other areas of scientific research.

A number of associated career fields can be explored as well. Individuals may further pursue their academic career and then go on to become a research scientist thus conducting experiments in diverse fields. The incumbent may also pursue a career in microbiology or join an educational institution in the capacity of a laboratory technician. An incumbent may also choose to opt for a career as a quality manager, engaged in the assessment of services and products that are offered by a commercial company. You can also join a firm in the capacity of a technical sales engineer involved in marketing the product and the subsequent sale of the technical equipments to consumers.

Several globally established pharmaceutical brands extend graduate programmes, which are initiated immediately after the conclusion of the academic course. They also provide a good remuneration package. This also means that you can continue with your academic pursuits in your chosen area of expertise.

The life sciences market in the UK is undoubtedly one the fastest growing and strongest markets around the globe. The pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare industry in the country has a stupendous record in drug discovery, increasing governmental support for research and development, a strong academic base and tax credits.

Apart from conducting research and development in the field, people are also absorbed in quality control and production jobs. People who have the knowledge of industrial-manufacturing techniques and technology are absorbed by biotechnological firms. The incumbent is responsible for ensuring that the finished product complies with all the quality standards. They are generally part of a quality control section.

Biotechnology sector also throws up job opportunities for management professionals. They need to appoint managers who can oversee the diverse functions of the company such as Quality Control, Research and Development and Production. Professionals are also employed in sectors such as sales and marketing. They are in charge of advertising and promoting the products and thus boost up sales. They are also responsible for locating new markets and interacting with clients on a regular basis. They are, in other words, the face of the pharmaceutical company.
