Poultry scientist

Poultry scientists use biology and chemistry to improve and manage the production and management of poultry for human consumption. They research the growth, development, physiology, genetics, nutrition, behaviour, and breeding of domesticated birds. They often work in laboratories but some poultry scientists work directly with flocks. They design feeding programs and new poultry products. They may assess individual birds to determine if they are fit for market and when diseases arise, they work with veterinarians to resolve issues and preserve the flock.

Epigeneticsics research assistant

Epigenetics is the study of how experiences and environment can affect how genes are expressed and whether they release the information they carry. The main role of an epigenetics research assistant is to provide technical assistance in carrying out various research projects in epigenetics. This can include designing experiments, collecting data, preparing samples and maintaining equipment.

Attributes: collaborative, organised, hard-working

Earth scientist

Earth scientists study the features of the Earth now and the evolution of the Earth in the past. They use this knowledge to help and sustain our planet for the future. They study the solid surface of the Earth and the ground beneath the surface (geologic science), the waters of the Earth (hydrologic science) and the air surrounding the Earth (atmospheric science).

Attributes: logical, imaginative and organised
