I have many friends who graudated with a PhD degree and having a very tough time looking for jobs in the Biotech industry.  They, then, go from one postdoc to another.  The biotech market being not the greatest these days, some of my friends are only taking temp positons.

 
I understand.    I have very limited experience with biotech.  The law firm I work for has a biotech section consisting of a single attorney with a PhD.   I believe he is the only person in the IP department to have a PhD.

I believe TedJus' comments are in regards to research positions, not patent agent/patent attorney positions.  I can tell you that in the area of the country where I live, most firms will not consider folks w/o a PhD for agent/advisor positions in biotech.  The same goes true for chemistry as well (my field), although not to the same degree
