Biological scientists hold about 91,300 jobs in the United States. In
addition, many biological scientists held biology faculty positions in
colleges and universities but are not included in these numbers. About 40
percent of all biological scientists were employed by Federal, state, and

Institutes of Health. Most of the rest worked in scientific research and
testing laboratories, the pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing
industry, or educational institutions.
