Career - Life Scientist

I need assistance to choose
Life Scientists will study the genetic, chemical, physical and structural composition of cells, tissues and organisms and identify cellular and developmental events that ensure continuity of life. They will determine the influence of internal and external environments on processes in animals (including humans), plants and other organisms and study organisms in controlled environments to gain an understanding of their survival and growth in real environments. They will examine the way mixed communities and ecosystems function in relation to their environment and the different organisms found in them and also predict the way humans and other influences will affect the structure and interactions in natural ecosystems. They will apply their knowledge and findings from research to maximise the long-term economic, social, environmental and recreational return from living resources and will write scientific reports on research, investigations and more general information for scientific, managerial, political and general audiences. They will provide advice to managers, politicians, primary producers, health care workers and the general public.
