Careers » Science Technologies » Zoologist

Zoologists are professionals who have a love for animals and a deep interest in researching and learning more about them. Zoologists are biologists that concentrate on studying animals either in laboratory settings or sometimes their natural environments. Some zoologists spend time indoors in classrooms and laboratories either teaching or conducting research but others work outdoors observing how animals behave and interact with their own as well as with other species. There are entry level jobs for individuals with bachelor's degrees in biology or zoology. However unless aspiring zoologists pursue graduate studies in the field there will not be much opportunity for advancement. The website httpjobs.lovetoknow.com says that for most high level research or administrative jobs zoologists need a doctoral degree. During the course of their graduate studies zoologists usually specialize in a certain area of animal science such as animal anatomy physiology genetics evolution of an animal species preferred habitats and migration food preferences or conservation of wildlife. Zoologists can focus their work on tiny insects that are best observed using a microscope or on large animals such as elephants and whales. Zoologists are employed in museums laboratories government agencies zoos colleges and universities and in the pharmaceutical industry. The job prospects are good in this field. Earnings for zoologists vary depending on employer location experience and level of education but the median annual salary is approximately $60000.
