Reference: there's not an obvious equivalent - masters level applied biology
Reference information: My understanding is that it's specific to the French degree system, where you can get a 5-year "ingénieur" degree. It is I believe like a BSc and MSc rolled into one. We wouldn't call what they do engineering in my opinion, we'd call it applied biology.
See for example http://www.utc.fr/formation_training/engineering-degree.php and the equivalent French page of the site
I'd avoid the term bioengineering too, as that is engineering (electronics, materials, etc.) applied to medicine (prostheses, instrumentation like scanners, monitors, etc.) - my husband has a masters in bioengineering, so I do know :-)
I'd be tempted to leave in the French followed by (senior biologist).
