Biopharma Employment Survey Upbeat About 2013

Published: Feb 12, 2013

While biopharma job growth has not completely rebounded from the 2007–09 recession, and many of the world’s economies continue to struggle, several measures over the past two years suggest that employment will pick up the pace in 2013, a new survey concludes.

Of the 5,836 participants completing the 2012 BioSpace Annual Demographic Survey between October and December 2012, the number of users actively seeking new jobs shrank to 46.8% last year from 54.9% in 2010. Nonmanagement positions grew to 38.4% in 2012 from about 36.7% two years earlier—faster growth than seen in management positions, which rose from 19% to 20.2%.
