The increase in our health consciousness, as well as concern for our environment, has led to a wide and growing variety of career opportunities in toxicology
The use of chemicals is important to a high standard of living, and the challenge to toxicologists is to ensure that these do not adversely impact human or environmental health. A toxicology career provides the excitement of science and research while also contributing to healthy and sustainable current and future generations. Few other careers offer such exciting and socially important challenges as protecting public health and the environment.
The demand for well-trained toxicologists continues to increase. Highly competitive salaries are available in a variety of employment sectors. Increasing specialization in the science of toxicology now provides the toxicologist with a competitive advantage over chemists, engineers, biologists or other scientists without specialized training in toxicology. Salaries for those with master’s degrees in toxicology will generally start at $50,000 to $60,000.
