Do I have a career in the patent agent field?

I am thinking about going into the patent agent/lawyer field. Could experienced patent agents/lawyers give me some opinions upon the possiblity for me to find a career in this field?  
Here is my experience. Master degree in pharmaceuticals and Ph.D. in Biophysics field, both were obtained in China. Seven years research experience in US top university in biophysics and genome research field, and have published many scientific research papers. I am 38 years now.  
 
I am thinking about passing the patent bar exam and then try to find a patent agent job. Can experienced people tell me if my plan is realistic? Thanks so much in advance for your valuable opinions.

Yes, you have potential in patent law.  Focus on China IP -- this is a huge area for U.S. industry right now.

Do you have to have citizenship to be a patent agent in USA?

i think you are more marketable in China than in the states if you do want to start your patent agent career at this age. good luck.
