The world is changing fast in the wildlife kingdom and we need to be able to help wildlife thrive in their natural habitat. We couldn’t do this without the help of wildlife biologist and zoologist. These professionals study the characteristics and behavior of animals – gaining a better understanding of how they interact with each other and their environments. Through breeding programs, informational presentations, and collecting and analyzing biological specimens, zoologists and wildlife biologists work on the front lines of the effort to preserve our planet’s biodiversity.
Remote sensing technicians are known for their keen eyes. They look at a variety of photos—like aerial photography, light and radio wave direction systems, digital satellites and thermal energy systems—to record information that helps us understand how to use the Earth’s land. Because they see things from a different perspective, they’re able to protect our resources and advocate for their best possible use.
Research and development managers help organizations determine if an undertaking will meet business goals. Think about your favorite flavor of ice cream. A research and development manager was likely tasked with overseeing important research into its development – the cost of the ingredients, analyzing consumer trends on nutrition and flavors, and finding efficient and cost-effective methods to produce it. Their findings enable businesses to make informed decisions and make products people love.
If you are curious and creative, then being a research scientists could be the path for you! They can be found working across every industry, from biology and chemistry to environmental science, pharmacology, physics, computer science and even history. They plan and conduct research by formulating hypotheses, conducting experiments and analyzing the results in order to expand knowledge. They may work for environmental agencies, food companies, universities, government entities or on publicly funded research projects.
Robotics technicians are the tech-savvy individuals that build, install, test and maintain robotic equipment. Their work positively transforms lives and work practices, raises efficiency and safety levels and provides enhanced levels of service. Natural problem solvers, these technicians know automation like the back of their hands.
Soil shares the same structure and capabilities as the largest human organ—the skin. Both are complex, layered, protective yet flexible and support every function that sustains life. Soil scientists study soil’s dynamic composition to understand how it can be managed to protect and improve agricultural practices, environmental quality and human health.
Technical problems usually don’t have a one-size-fits-all solution and that’s especially true for businesses and organizations with large scale software systems. It’s the job of solutions architects to understand user or functionality issues and resolve them by researching, designing and managing the implementation of solutions. Their work ensures that organizations are able to maximize efficiency and achieve their goals.
Toxicology is often referred to as the “Science of Safety” – toxicologists use the power of science to test and predict how various chemicals may cause harm. These scientists typically have a strong understanding of science and biology – working primarily in laboratory settings to study the effects and proper doses of substances ranging from pesticides to prescription drugs. Toxicologists play a key role in protecting public health, the environment and animal welfare.
Veterinarians are the animal experts—from pets to livestock. And their deep knowledge stems from research and development; they understand the whole animal. They use this expertise to diagnose, treat and research diseases and sustain animal life for years to come.
Veterinary pathologists diagnose diseases by going straight to the source—they examine animal tissues and body fluids. Veterinary pathology is divided into two branches: anatomical pathology (examination of organs, tissues and bodies) and clinical pathology (examination and urine and blood). This isn’t for the faint of heart—veterinary pathologists are the crux of sustaining animal health.
