Zoologist

  1. 1. Peyton holl
  2. 2.  Biological scientists Study living organisms and their relationship to the environment Zoology specializes in one area of biology (study of animals) Identified by animal group they study like birds, mammals, reptiles or fish Conduct studies In laboratories ( most involving animals) Study wild life origin, behavior, disease, and life processes Experiment with animals in a controlled or natural environment Can dissect dead animals to better understand their structure Spend time in offices writing up results Field studies involving strenuous physical activity and primitive living conditions Typically work regular hours (40hr week is common)
  3. 3.  Most need a PhD in biology (other positions are open to those who have a masters or bachelors degree Courses in chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics, computer classes Should be able to work independently or as a team Be able to communicate in writing or orally Working in the field requires physical heath 5-6 years of college study or 2 years for a masters and a lower form of the job like management, product development, a teacher
  4. 4.  Median annual wage were $55,290 in 2008 Middle 50% earned $43,060-$70,500 Lowest 10% earned less than $33,550 Highest 10% earned more than $90,850
  5. 5.  Employment is expected to increase much faster than average (still competition for basic research positions grow 21% over 2008-18 More scientists are needed for environmental research, diseases cures Zoology will still be demanded but limited for the field is too small Most field research is given to people with a ph.d Less likely to lose your job during job recessions
