Microbiologists typically need at least a bachelor's degree in microbiology, though a closely related scientific field also works. Those with PhDs can usually make more money and run their own independent research, but microbiologists with lower-level degrees or less experience can still find rewarding, well-paying work across the nation. And if you're interested in this field and don't yet have the degree to work as a microbiologist, you might consider seeking microbiology tech jobs. These positions let you work closely with professionals in the niche and gain experience and knowledge on conducting science and medical experiments and research.
Microbiology travel tech jobs let you do all that while also traveling the country. You can find plenty of assignments via Club Staffing, and our recruiters help you plan your next assignments to meet your career goals as well as your personal preferences for what landmarks, cities, or locations you want to explore.
How Much Can You Earn as a Traveling Microbiologist?
Microbiologists make an average of $75,650 per year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical microbiologist salary numbers obviously depend on your level in the lab, your experience and education as well as what type of research you're doing and for whom. For example, according to Salary.com, the average microbiology tech salary is around $43,712 per year.
As a traveling microbiologist, you might even earn more. Travel healthcare workers are in high demand and usually filling in where those skills are in great need or staffing shortages mean employers are willing to pay a bit more. Travel microbiologist tech jobs come with up to $2,200 for weekly pay through Club Staffing, for example.
On top of a competitive salary, you can also access some great benefits. Benefits that Club Staffing offers include:
- Insurance coverage, including medical, dental, and vision
