The Industry

While biologists are better known by their specialties, they are united by their study of living organisms. They learn how living organisms work, interact together, and evolve, which allows us to understand our world better, care for ourselves and other living organisms better, and plan for the future.

The Career Options

Biology students have a wide variety of choices in terms of specializations and careers. While many biologists are researchers, other biologists apply their understanding of living organisms through a variety of professions. Biological scientists carry out research at universities, private laboratories, or for the government. Geneticists, biochemists, botanists, microbiologists, physiologists, biophysicists, zoologists, ecologists are all biological scientists. Other biologists apply their understanding of living organisms through careers in healthcare, environmental management and conservation, or education. These types of professions include veterinarians, doctors, teachers, or even park rangers.

The Internship

Sometimes the array of possible specializations can be confusing, and making the right choice can seem daunting. Pursuing a biology internship can be a big help in making an informed choice about your interest in biology. The real world conditions provide interns with relevant experience and help provide a clear understanding of the skills that a career in biology requires.

Depending on your interests, you can choose internships in areas of research like biomedical or natural sciences or even in ecology, biological fieldwork, environmental education, botany or conservation, microbiology and more. Use the opportunity to get familiar with the types of software and hardware used in the field in which you’re interning. Research biologists use many software programs which can help with visualizing and interacting with data; creating documents; managing references; processing images; making diagrams; extracting data from published papers; sharing data and knowledge; automating tasks; and editing text. Most research biologists use a UNIX operating system to run these advanced tools. For most biology professions, you’ll need to obtain an advanced degree. Research positions typically require a doctorate degree.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs for biologists is expected to grow about 5% over the next decade, which is about average, though some specialties like biochemistry will see faster growth.
