what is a marine biologist
What is a Marine Biologist?
  • Marine biologists study fish and other wildlife that inhabits the oceans.
  • They study the physical characteristics of animals, their behaviors, and the impacts humans have on wildlife and natural habitats.
  • The oceans contain more than 97% of the total water on the Earth, and account for nearly 99% of the Earth's living space, owing to their area as well as depth.
  • I became interested in this career field when I went deep sea fishing and caught some interesting fish.
  • I will be researching:

  • Ph.D.
  • Students typically take zoology and wildlife biology courses in ecology, anatomy, wildlife management, and cellular biology.
  • I will go to Oakland University to further myself in the career.
job outlook employment
Job Outlook / Employment
  • I want to find this career’s openings somewhere along the east coast.
  • There is no particular place that I would enjoy working at.

Micro Biologist

  • Microbiologists study microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and some types of parasites. They try to understand how these organisms live, grow, and interact with their environments.
  • Microbiologists work in laboratories and offices, where they conduct scientific experiments and analyze the results. Most microbiologists work full time and keep regular hours.
  • A bachelor’s degree in microbiology or a closely related field is needed for entry-level microbiologist jobs. A Ph.D. is typically needed to carry out independent research and to work in colleges and universities.
  • Micro Biologists are projected to grow 7 percent from 2012 to 2022
  • The median annual wage for microbiologists was $66,260 in May 2012.
  • Max told me to be it
  • I look forward to pursuing this career in my life. From the information I have researched I learned what I can earn in this career, how many years of schooling is needed and much more. The one thing I look forward to the most is being able to work with marine life. One thing I look forward to the least is having to report all my findings and prepare presentations. I still would enjoy having this job because I still find it awesome.
