Number Of Quant Professionals By Industry


We thought it would be interesting to see which industries employ the greatest number of “Quant Professionals.” In this graphic, we divide them among each of the industries that we cover in our Life Science recruiting practice: Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare, and Medical Device.

There are four groupings, each representing a group of closely related titles:

  1. Professionals with variations of statistics and biostatistics in their titles
  2. Professionals who call themselves data scientists
  3. Professionals who work in bioinformatics
  4. Professionals who specifically have the phrase “Machine Learning” in their titles

It is useful to know the size of the addressable market when you are recruiting for this talent and where they sit. In some of our other visualizations we show the location concentrations of this workforce and their respective career levels in terms of years of experience.
