23. Preparation For A Career In Marine Biology
can provided coursework in general marine biology, and a K Webster, Ph.D. Seniormarine Biologist Monterey For information about careers at the Monterey Bay
Dear students: Marine biology is a graduate level pursuit, and so the first priority is to obtain a strong undergraduate major in biological sciences. If you already have a strong interest in fishes, or marine mammals, or ecology, etc., you will want to choose a college or university with some strength in those areas, and this can generally be gleaned from a reading of the catalog from virtually any school. Most major colleges and universities can provide a good basic biology preparation. Math through calculus, some statistics, and some computer science should also be included to round out the preparation in the major. Selecting the graduate school is more directed to specialization. One should not plan to study crab reproduction at a school where no professors are involved in that specialty, so some ground work has to be done to determine where the people are located who are involved in the desired area of concentration. Your priority interests have, one hopes, been identified by the end of the undergraduate years, so you then go into the current scientific literature at a university library to determine who is publishing in the desired field of interest. For instance, if population biology or behavior among elephant seals is the area of interest, a review of the literature would lead you to U.C. Santa Cruz and Dr. Burney La Boeuf. Or, if your interest is in coastal ecology, the literature might lead to Dr. Paul Dayton at Scripps. Coral reef ecology would be Dr. John Ogden at Florida Atlantic, etc. If you are not sure of the specialty, then most schools with marine stations can provided coursework in general marine biology, and a specialty can be identified while working towards your Masters degree. Hopefully, a change of institution will not be required, but that's all right even if it is.

26. Marine Biology Career Questionaire
A comprehensive overview of careers in marine biology and the other marine sciences.
SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT A MARINE BIOLOGY CAREER 1. What, in your opinion, are the disadvantages of being a Marine Biologist? Don't see any real disadvantages at all. Can't complain about freedom (a fair amount), opportunities (lots in everything from government to teaching to popular book writing) 2. What, in your opinion, are the advantages of being a Marine Biologist? Advantages include doing what you love to do; travel, often to fascinating and lovely places; interactions with interesting folks. 3. If you could do it all over again, would you have chosen this field? Why? Maybe, but maybe not. Who knows why? Life is complex. I started wanting to be a writer, but found that I loved geology and majored in this in college and in graduate school. It was in graduate school that marine biology took over as my primary interest. 4. I heard that it is hard to get a job as a Marine Biologist because of the few job openings. Was it hard for you? I was lucky as jobs were relatively accessible in the early 1970s but one should not enter a field without a realistic understanding of the job market. Govt. jobs and academic jobs are very competitive but still available. I have had 16 students get Ph.D.s and all are employed or on the way. I am optimistic. 5. What do you find the most satisfying part of this field?

These are links to places where one can find information about careers in specific fields of biology. For the most part these pages are maintained by the professional/scientific organization whose speciality is that area. Career information is divided into the rather broad categories of "Molecular and Cellular" and "Organismal and Field" . Some sites are fairly general and are listed in both categories. There is also a listing of some sites that provide information on specific jobs and internships . For more generic information about finding a job, look at the information provided by ESU's Career Placement Office
Finding a career, whether it be in biology or not, is often a difficult process. For some help in this area, look at the page Career Exploration on the Internet . This page guides you through this process starting with an exploration of self.

    WHAT JOBS DO BIOLOGISTS HAVE? Research Many researchers work at colleges and universities, where they also teach. Industry employs research biologists in fields such as biotechnology, drug development, and food processing. Some research biologists work for the government, where they aim to protect and restore the environment, breed better crops, fight human and animal diseases, evaluate food and drug safety, or work on space missions. Researchers attend seminars, read scientific journals, and write articles to tell others about their results. Some travel to exotic places to do their work. Researchers often need help from skilled people trained in biology. Laboratory technicians help carry out experiments; they often become experts at taking field measurements, manipulating cells, handling animals and chemicals, or using sophisticated instruments. Health Care Health care workers apply biological knowledge to keep people healthy or return sick people to health. Physicians, dentists, nurses, medical technicians, and physician's assistants all must have a solid biology background. Some health care professionals work directly with patients; others may devise public health campaigns to defeat illnesses such as tuberculosis, AIDS, cancer, and heart disease. Some work to prevent the spread of rare, deadly diseases like that caused by the now infamous Ebola virus. The Great Outdoors Many outdoor jobs await people well trained in the life sciences. Horticulturalists develop new crop varieties, care for plants in greenhouses and fields, and design landscape plans. Fisheries biologists might work with an aquaculture company, overseeing the reproduction of farm-raised trout that eventually end up in your local supermarket. Zookeepers make food, medicate animals, and may help with captive breeding programs for endangered species.

    What is Marine Biology?
    Marine biologists study the behaviour, biochemistry, ecology and physiology of organisms that live in the oceans. These organisms range in size from the smallest phytoplankton to invertebrates, such as molluscs and starfish, to vertebrates such as fish, marine birds and mammals. With over 16,000 km of coastline, and the fourth largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the world, an understanding of the marine environment is crucial to all New Zealanders.
    A training in Marine Biology leads to careers in:
    • NIWA as scientists and technicians
    • environmental consultancy
    • aquaculture and fisheries
    • regional councils
    • natural history television production
    • ecotourism
    • teaching
    What courses contribute to a programme majoring in Marine Biology?
    Marine biology courses cover a broad range of disciplines including behaviour, ecology and physiology. New Zealand's marine organisms and environments are introduced in Year 1 in two courses. BIOSCI 103 (Comparitive Animal Biology) and BIOSCI 104 (New Zealand Ecology and Conservation). At Year 2, marine biology is covered in three courses BIOSCI 206:Ecology, BIOSCI 207 (Animal Function and Design) and BIOSCI 208: Biology of Marine Organisms. BIOSCI 206 includes a 4-day field trip to learn the practical skills of marine biology.

    Chris Muller works for Trimble Navigation in Christshurch - a subsidiary of a US company than manufactures GPS equipment (the Global Positioning System uses orbiting satellites to calculate a position anywhere around the earth and can be used for mapping, data collection and precise positioning). For his BSc, Chris studied Coastal Marine Ecology and Aquaculture, Biological Oceanography and Advanced Software Design (with the Computer Science Department). In 4th year, Chris included a paper on Geopraphical Inofrmation systems (Geography Department) and his MSc research at SBS studied the visual prey location ability of snapper, especially under low light.
