The wonderful world of microbiology represents countless opportunities for the life sciences, and for a global humanity. The potential for life-altering discovery and drug development is extraordinary in the microbiology space, and alongside being a genuinely fascinating field of work, it has a direct impact on our everyday lives.
In the last few years alone, microbiologists have discovered a new control system for synthetic genes, unveiled new methods of extracting more oil from vegetables, and found that bacteria in cow stomachs can break down plastics. The list goes on and on, but suffice to say, there’s a new realm of discovery around every corner in this area of the life sciences.
Being a vast field comprised of hundreds of different roles and responsibilities, microbiology is home to many amazing job opportunities. From analysts and engineers to technicians and consultants, quality control officers, lab assistants and senior microbiologist jobs, there’s like something for any technically-minded, curious, science lover.
The possibilities are endless in the world of microbiology, provided that companies can secure the right talent. This is much easier said than done however, especially when the talent market is highly competitive, buoyant, hard to navigate, and short on candidates, building impactful teams becomes extremely difficult. It’s not the like the talent doesn’t exist, because it certainly does – it’s just a matter of finding it.
This discovery process, combined with the interview stage, the onboarding, the training, the probation and countless other factors, makes recruiting an expensive and time-consuming endeavour.

Life Sciences in Berlin
Beautiful Berlin is Europe’s cultural jewel. It’s home to a myriad of astonishing sights, galleries, museums, profoundly thought-provoking memorials, the Reichstag, week-long parties, and a booming life sciences scene. Berlin is a truly unique city – it emanates creativity, not only in the life sciences space, but in the arts too, representing a beautiful, inimitable synergy, as seen regularly in the world-renowned Art Laboratory Berlin.
Berlin is one of the world’s leading life science clusters, boasting a huge number of highly advanced educational institutes, robust biotech, pharmacutical and medtech ecosystems. These are the systems that support over 500 companies in the life sciences space. The world-famous HealthCapital was founded back in 1996, and since then, the cluster has become a launching pad for countless life sciences startups, representing boundless opportunity for progression within the sector.
According to Refire Online, Berlin’s life science real estate transaction value alone was worth 634 million euros between 2017 and 2021. Moreover, there’s a thriving medtech presence that’s home to many of the world’s most impactful biotech and medtech companies, including Klara and Amboss.
With over 70 independent research institutes, hundreds of top-ranked research initiatives, and plenty of international science conferences, Germany’s capital acts as hotspot for discovery and innovation in what is undoubtably one of the most impactful fields of modern research.
The past few years have been incredibly testing for organisations everywhere. The pandemic shone a spotlight in on the life sciences, (particularly healthcare science) unveiling their critical importance to a much wider audience. Berlin’s life sciences industry proved to be robust, ultimately helping produce one of the major vaccines at a time of unprecedented turmoil. If you’re hoping to get ahead in Berlin’s life sciences industry, now is the perfect time to start building the teams of the future.
