Multiple Moves/Mentoring

I've been following this thread for sometime, and I have some questions of
my own to throw out.  I am an extended senior at a small liberal arts
college.  I've been working in industry for the past three years, and have
a paper in review.  I have tons of lab experience in molecular biology,
and some experience in immunology.  As well as enjoying my job immensely,
I also love to learn.  I am starting to apply to graduate schools to go on
for my PhD. I have absolutly NO desire to teach, at any point in my career
(she says now:).  I've tutored <sp.> several semesters, I've TA'd, and I
hate it.  So, what are the job prospects for someone like me, who wants to
get all the education I can, but wants a career in industry? As far as
moving around goes, I am only applying to grad schools in warmer climates
(I HATE Wisconsin winters).  I'm married and have a five year old son, and
my husband is all for moving, but then wants to settle down.  For this
reason, I am especially interested in grad schools near Reaserch Triangle.
 So, any advice, suggestions, or  warnings would be greatly appreciated!
