Research and Development

Research biologists study the natural world to understand how living systems work. They use the latest scientific tools and techniques in both laboratory settings and the outdoors. Research biology can be conducted from exotic locations around the world. Scientific discoveries increase our understanding of biology and may be put to practical use to find solutions to specific problems.

Environmental Management and Conservation

Biologists in management and conservation careers are interested in taking environmental problems and finding solutions to preserve the natural world for generations to come. Management and conservation biologists will work with members of a community to develop management plans and put them into action. Park rangers protect state and national parks, help preserve their natural resources, and educate the general public. Zoo biologists carry out endangered species recovery programs.

Education and Social Services & Law

Life science educators enjoy working with people and encouraging them to learn new things, whether in a classroom, a research lab, the field, or a museum.

  • Colleges and universities: Professors and lecturers teach introductory and advanced biology courses. They may also mentor students with projects and direct research programs.
  • Primary and secondary schools: Teaching younger students requires a general knowledge of science and skill at working with different kinds of learners. High school teachers often specialize in biology and teach other courses of personal interest.
