Agricultural & forestry scientist
Agricultural and Forestry Scientists are involved in the study, research and analysis of plants, farming and cultivation methods in order to improve and enrich forest and agricultural areas. Scientists will advise and work alongside agricultural stakeholders, including farmers, to further the agricultural industry and ensure long term growth and sustainability.
Agriculture farming specialist
Provide research-led practical solutions for farmers and livestock producers.
Food & wine scientist
Wine scientists examine grapes, both physically and chemically, for quality and readiness for the purpose of winemaking. Food scientists physically and chemically examine food products for productivity and safety. They also work to develop and improve new and existing food and beverage products.
Geologist & geophysicist
Geologists and Geophysicists study the nature and composition of the physical attributes of the earth. They research the composition and structure of various layers of the earth and provide advice on the mining and extraction of minerals, water, and other substances from the earth. They often also work in weather, seismic, and oceanographic forecasting.
Research the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of living organisms such as humans, animals and plants and their relationship with the environment.
Observe the makeup and chemistry of humans, animals, and plants. Glean information about how organisms interact with each other.
Protect the environment by researching and advising on flora, fauna and natural resources.
Life Scientists study the substance, function and interactions of living organisms and their environments. They conduct experiments and studies based on research objectives. They should have scientific knowledge and strong attention to detail as well as strong analytical abilities to interpret data.
Mathematicians study mathematical principles and develop their own mathematical theories and ideas. They may work in the theoretical realm or they may apply their findings to financial, business, governmental, engineering, and social science issues in the larger world.
Metallurgists are a subset of a larger category of physical science professionals. Metallurgists primarily study the processing and composition of various metals. They also do work on studying extraction processes.
Research & development manager
Research and Development Managers coordinate the research and development departments of businesses and other organisations. Their work is mostly administrative and interpersonal in nature rather than hands-on research and development.
Science Technicians deal with researching and teaching sciences including chemistry, earth science, life science and physical science. They also provide technical support in these areas. Science Technicians are in charge of everything from preparing materials for experiments to maintaining relevant equipment. Their role also includes fieldwork and presenting results.
Soil Scientists study the soil and what is living within. Like environmental scientists, soil scientists work to understand the environment and soil conditions. They often focus on maintaining the overall health of the soil. Their work is often used in finding ways to protect the environment, reduce pollution and keep the soil healthy. Most of a soil scientists work involves studying the upper layer of the earths crust and working to understand the organisms that live in these upper layers.
