A career in biology can be immensely rewarding and exciting for people with scientific and research aptitude. Biologists learn how living things work , how they interact with one other and how they evolve. They may study cells under microscope, insects in a rain forest, viruses that affect human beings, plants in a greenhouse etc. The research carried out by them increase our understanding about the natural world in which we live and helps us address issues of personal well being and various other worldwide concerns such as global warming, environmental depletion , threats to human health etc.The main work and responsibilities of biologists are:-
Collecting and analyzing biological data about relationships among and between organisms and their environment.
Study aquatic plants and animals and environmental conditions affecting them such as radioactivity or pollution.Identify , classify and study structures, behavior, ecology , physiology , nutrition , culture and distribution of plant and animal species.
Plan and administer biological research programmers for government, research firms, medical industries or manufacturing firms.
Communicate the research finding to central and state government and general public
Program and use computers to store, process and analyze data.
Prepare environmental impact reports for industry, government or publications.
Representing employers in a technical capacity at various science conferences.
A biologist is a person involved in studying various aspects of a living organism.
HiA biologist work as technician, researcher, scientist, professor, doctor etc all are the synonyms of a job to serve for the biological sciences. Biological job is very much 24x7 which depends on your experimental designing and required duration for a particular procedure / protocol. There is a defined route map to reach the goal of biologist, where responsibilites lie in the complex manner and henceforth a biologist becomes a regular customer of natural feeds.For a lay man it is very important to understand about the responsibilities in terms of technical, scientific, ethical ets before taking it up:1. Biologist always happen to be a student and learner -- to update the knowledge and contemporary development in the scientific world accordingly they publish their own data to make it public and therefor each and every scientist work together to contribute the valuable inputs.2. A biologist / researcher maintains the continuity and follow the desciplined life to follow his or her experiment so that effort, investment of time and money and most importantly expectation get fullfilled and this attitude make them successful.3. Before framing any conceept or poropsal for research they use to present in front of reverent senior research scientist and face the rigourous task to make it through with the great conviction only then you will be given any financial assistance to carry out the research work.4. As we know the lab establishment and experimentation cost you and your country hugely so biologist has to be very good manager also so that financial budgeting is maintained and as per the defined heads they are bound to spend money. It is a huge responsibility for a scientist to manage the fund along with research and development. Biologist undergoes a stringent progress reporting based on the planed proposal and intelligently they execute the entire project within stipulate time of frame which is very important. 4. Accordingly a senior biologist known as group leader or program leader or principal investigator manages the research activity and financial deal of entire group member and correct the thesis at doctorate level, review the manuscripts, write the good proposal these are the real challanges to sustain in biological world. Failing to do anything out of the above listed points no point to be a biologist.5. To do or to take these responsibilities you have to be good human being, need to carry modern temperament, ready to face the critics, be a critic for your student or colleague and then your academic niche decides entire journey of your biological life.Good luckDr Manoj
Dear friend, you have asked an intersting question, I am also a biologist (microbiologist) and I am happy to answer your query. The biologist could a botanist, zoologist, microbiologist, biotchnologist, biochemist, environmental scientist, biomedical scientist, forensic scientist, agriculture scientist, veterinary scientist, marine biologist, nanobiotechnologist, Food technologist and many more subjects.The main work and responsibilities of a biologist, where he or she is working, in government sector (university, college, institute) or private sector / multinational company or in non governmental organization (NGO). In university and colleges, the biologist has to interact with students, colleagues, seniors and clients. He is involved in teaching, research, guidance and other departmental or universrity related activities. Writing of research papers, review articles, book chapters or books also keeps a biologist busy not only in office but also in home. As an academecian, the teaching is very important part of the job of a biologist. He may be involved in teaching graduate, post graduate, M.Phil and doctoral degree programs. The students do visit his office after class to get answer of their queries. The biologist also interacts with M.Sc, M.Phil and PhD students related to their research progress. He has to guide about conduction of new experiments, writing reports and other work.Besides teaching and research the biologist is also supposed to write and win research projects. He has to write the research proposals to funding agencies for reseach grants. After winning the project, he has to start the work by recruiting the research fellows, purchaning of chemicals and instruments. Monitoring the progress of the project, report writing and submisstion to the funding agency.The another main job of the biologist is to conduct or attend international or national confernces, symposium, workshops and trainings. This is the platform where the biologist gets an opportunity to interact with like minded people from across the globe. This is the opportunity to know the latest developments in science and also to make research collaborations with person or institute of your choice. To organize such evenets is also a prt of job of a biologist, this is important to get progess or promotion in the field. In private sector, there is no teaching, but senior biologist also imparts trainings to other colleagues. The main work here is research and develelopmental activities.
