A Career in the Biological Sciences. Revised Edition.
Rosenthal, Neal H.
This publication, a pamphlet included in the B'nai B'rith Occupational Brief Series, directs its attention to man's attempts to develop greater knowledge and understanding of life's secrets so that he can improve his health and well-being, conserve and increase the fruitfulness of the earth, and cope with disease and pests. Life scientists study all forms of plant and animal life. The nature of work, the specialties and various ways in which these specialties are classified are presented and each is described briefly. The educational requirements for a career as a biological scientist are pointed out as are some of those personal qualifications needed for success. Facts about seeking employment, women's role in the professions, earnings, advantages and disadvantages, and employment outlook are discussed. A selected bibliography is included. (EB)
