Forensic scientist3

  1. 1. By Antonio Rodriguez & Jerry Marquez FORENSIC SCIENTIST
  2. 2. • Forensic Science-application of a broad spectrum of sciences and technologies to investigate situations after the fact, and to establish what occurred based on collected evidence • Forensic Scientists are experts who analyze every piece of evidence following an investigation. WHAT DO THEY DO?
  3. 3. • Entry-level forensic scientists normally have a bachelor's degree in forensic science or a related field, such as biology, chemistry or physics. • English classes are recommended because forensic scientists need strong written and oral communication skills to write reports and testify in court. EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
  4. 4. The best colleges in the US to study forensic science are • Boston University • Penn State University • Virginia Commonwealth University • UC Davis • Ohio University BEST FORENSIC COLLEGES
  5. 5. • Consider doing a low or non-paid internship in a crime laboratory to gain experience in the forensic application of science. • In order for you to get that experience you will need to make phone calls to labs in which you are interested because they will not be listed in the public EXPERIENCE NEEDED
  6. 6. • The United States Department of Labor expects a job growth in the area of forensic science, at least through 2018 and about 20% of those jobs will be provided by the federal government • Even though the job rate will go up, it doesn’t change the level of competition for these jobs, which is very hard JOB OPPORTUNITY
  7. 7. • If you have a bachelor's degree while working for the government the expected pay is $95,240 yearly • If you work in a local government your expected pay is around $54,990 yearly • In California a forensic scientist is expected to make around $68,880 a year or $33.12 per hour SALARY
  8. 8. • They can help to determine if a crime has been committed how and when a crime was committed • They use that information to identify if a suspect was really involved in a crime scene • They can also identify disease outbreaks and other causes of sudden increases in death in any population IMPACT
  9. 9. • In order to solve the cases, they use any source of DNA that is left at the crime scene • The Sanger Method is a process established by Fred Sanger in 1975; they add four dideoxy nucleotides in order to convert the evidence to a DNA sequence. HEALTH RELATION
  10. 10. • On a daily basis they will examine items of evidence submitted to the laboratory, such as blood, semen, saliva, urine, ect. • They perform chemical extraction processes to remove the DNA from the stain • Reports are written following all testing performed, in preparation that any one of the cases worked on may end up going to trial DAILY ROUTINE
  11. 11. • Different job titles: Medical Examiner, Crime Science Examiner, Forensic Engineer, Crime Laboratory Analyst • The highest paying of the four is Medical Examiner; it requires an average of more than seven years of school SUBHEADING
  12. 12. • The “CSI Effect”- is any of several ways in which the exaggerated portrayal of forensic science on crime television shows • Also some new programs in colleges have been criticized for ineffectively preparing their students for real forensic work due to there lack of ties to what forensics really is MISCONCEPTIONS
