They usually have to receive a phd and their salaries range from places of employment. I chose to read about this career because I love animals and I find animal behavior interesting. The other career I read about was a clinical geneticist. They need to recieve an md and their responsibilities are to study genetics of people before they are born. I chose this career to read about because I have always been interested in how people bocome who they are

I think this would be cool because I have always wondered about things such as instincts and other behaviors.

Richiee12 wrote: I've decided to choose a career in oceanography, Biological Oceanographer. A bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement for beginning positions, but of course a doctoral degree is required for teaching in college. Salaries range from $36,790-$86,620. I found an interest in this job because I've always been interested in marine life. As a child I had a 55 gallon salt water fish tank with many kinds of fish from the oceans all over the world. My eyes stayed glued to the tank. Its always been an excitement for me.

The second career I chose was in forensic science, Forensic Scientist. A four-year degree in physics, biology, microbiology, chemistry, medical technology, or genetics, is required in order to obtain an entry-level job in forensic science and experience in a laboratory is sometimes required too. With experience, forensic scientists may eventually earn annual salaries between $35,000 and $50,000. I've been interested in criminal justice since I was a child too. My mom has always watched CSI and Forensic Files and even now I watch First 48. Crime and its investigations are intense, yet very interesting to me.
I've always found oceanography to be intersting too. The job very closley related if not the same job as marine biology. I have had fish tanks too before and it is fun to watch to fish swim around. Ever since i was little i've always liked marine life and the ocean which is why marine biology interest me as a future career.

This is a very wide range of different specialist and scientific careers. To be a botanist you should take college prep classes in all of your course work, have extra curricular activites and be informed about the programs and courses you want to take in college. in college you should take get a broad general education in language, arts, humanities and the social sciences in addition to specializing in plant biology. most colleges will have you take a core botany course before you go on to specialized botany classes. the rate of pay for a botanist is a variety of amounts. The American Institute for Biological Science 2003 salary survey states that for people with less than one year of experience was estimated at $33,000 and for those with 30 years or more $108,000. The median for all positions without supervisory responsibilities was $48,000 and for those supervising 10 or more professional and sub professional employees, the median income was $126,500. I would want to become a botanist or have a career dealing with botany because plant can deal so many things. It can go from microbiology with bacteria and cells to discovering new plants and finding new medical advancements to help with diseases. It can deal with stopping pollution also. I think botanist help the world because they investigate what helps give us oxygen to breathe. cyclops Very Happy
I also think botany would be a very exciting career to persue also. It deals with so many different subjects of science and botanist can make a lot of money for it too. Plants are so amazing. they are completely unique organisms and i've always liked studying them. plants can be used to help cure diseases or just helping the environment, which is why i like botany. Getting paid to plany with plants and flowers all day seems really fun.

Plants!

Suga-Mama wrote:I also looked at botany for a career in biology. Botany is the study of plants. Botany is intersting to me because i have always wanted to understand how plants evolved and what makes them different from animals. I've always wanted to learn how plants "work". Botanist can make from $33,000-$142,000 a year. The ones who make over 100,000 are highly specialized and have loads of experience and Ph.D degrees. It would take about 6-8 years in college to get a Ph.D in botany and in marine biology, but both subjects sound really intersting to me.
I have always thought that botanists were lowliving peoples with a low salary and all, but now i realize that they get paid alot!!! and just for looking at plants!! amazing!!!

I think botanist help the world because they investigate what helps give us oxygen to breathe. The 2nd career choice I researched was Physiology. Physiiology is the study of life. It's the study of how genes, cells, tissues, and organisms function. The education required for this field is to begin with with an undergraduate major in science or liberal arts with a focus on science. Masters or Bachelor degrees usually have supervision from senior physiologists. To teach or have your own laboratory group usually needs a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. For salary expectations a bachelors degree makes $30,000 for university and $50,000 for industry, masters degree would be $35,000 for university and $56,000 for industry, and industry senior scientists is $78,000. I would become a physiologist because it is about what us as humans are made up of. It is helpful to cure diseases of humans and animals and the ability to adapt to new environments. It can be new drug discoveries and treatments for pharmeceutical purposes. I like physiology because it can be a way to help the world by better understanding of the way life functions. cyclops Very Happy
Man, Botany still sounds lame to me but whatever. If I did do botany it would be only because the paycheck doubles that of animation. I also am not as big fan of trees and all that becuz I am not a tree hugger.

The oceanography one sounds fun, but thats only because apparently it pays alot. I would have fun listening to dolphins talk jiberish and discover new species in the ocean. Maybe i would find Nemo and Dory then discover a new species of whale too. Golly Jee, I would love oceanography. NO SARCASM HERE.

Ok first off, physiology caught my attention the most. It is the study of the bodies functions and makeup. In this field it seems like it will be a long lasting career. We will always need people to study the body and it reaction to different conditions. This study can help us see how the body reacts to space travel and deep sea travel. Both of those types of travels are becoming and remaining big now-a-days. This job pays an average salary of 22,000 to 30,000 dollars per year, and it requires 269 college hours to become a physiologist. It sound captivating and I know when I join this field I will be saving lives everyday and finding new ways to help heal the body and make the body work for you!!!
The next profession that I was interested in was a genetics laboratory technician. They study human DNA in things like forensics and tracing peoples' DNA back decades and centuries. This job usually takes 4 years to get. The job pays an average of $18000-$36000 a year. It seems like it would be fun to study peoples genes and trace them or find out who killed someone at a crime scene.


Physiology caught my attention the most too! This career, to me, holds promises, because our country is now evolving into a place where you need a college degree to live comfortably. And this career guarentees that because its always going to be in demand.

My motivation for choosing this career is the fact that I will be studying life and finding solutions to make it better. Another interesting career was one in genetics. In order to be active in research and development, it will require a Ph.D or M.D. Geneticists can earn over $90,000. My motivation is the fact that I will be working with DNA and solving its puzzles... and I like puzzles! bounce I love you Very Happy

Being a biologist would be nice but the salary with a Ph.d, is not cool at all. bounce
