Bottom line: Don't use "PhD" to say you're a good writer--it doesn't
signify. Do use "PhD" to say you know your topic (Biology).

Coming from an environmental engineering background, I'd say that a lot
of engineers/scientists will like your degreed state because it gives
them assurance that you know the topic (and also salves any ego issues).
That just gets you over the first hurdle. Depending on whether the
hiring person knows and values good writing, then you have to prove you
can write.

There Bill--is that succinct enough for you?
