    It depends on your interest. Masters is enough if you have done a project and have thesis (+/- publications). After Masters it is easy to get into a biotech company and earn money - settle in life. There are jobs available in Academia for Masters. But if you really are interested in studies and have patience, then you can do a Ph.D. After Ph.D you either can go to a faculty position (based on your publications and recommendations from supervisors) or get a higher position in biotech company. Also, Ph.D takes 4-5 years. If you are married and started a family that is fine. Otherwise, you have to postpone few things and everything depends on your supervisor and your research topic.

    Finally, you have to make a choice whether to get into a job and have a family life or get Ph.D but sacrifice (may not be the case sometimes) few things.
