Summary
This reference for students in middle school and up profiles some 80 science jobs, including emerging positions such as bioinformatic specialist and geographic information systems specialist, as well as traditional jobs such as chemist and astronomer. Each profile provides detailed information on the duties, salaries, and prospects for each job. Echaore-McDavid has written previous books on careers. Many experts are concerned about the increasing shortage of trained scientists in the U.S., indicating a lively and growing market for jobs in the field. In particular, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts faster than average growth for biologists and medical scientists, especially those working in genetic, biotechnological, biomedical, and environmental disciplines. Filled with essential information, Career Opportunities in Science covers many science occupations expected to grow in the coming years. Among the more than 80 jobs profiled, fast-growing jobs such as biochemist, molecular biologist, bioinformatic specialist, pharmacologist, computer engineer, geographic information systems specialist, science teacher, forensic scientist, and patent agent are covered, as well as traditional jobs such as physicist, astronomer, chemist, zoologist, oceanographer, and geologist. Entries are separated into three categories: basic science disciplines; applied sciences, and alternative science occupations, and grouped by field, e.g., biological sciences, chemistry, computer science. Each profile provides detailed information about the duties, salaries, and prospects for each job. Appendixes provide directories of appropriate educational institutions, industry associations and organizations, and list periodicals, websites, and other useful sources of information
