The zoologist is a person who study the animals, their behavior, classification, distribution and their physiological aspects. Being a zoologist you must love animals and should have passion to spend time with them. Normally the jobs for a zoologist are in field or laboratory conditions.

The zoologist working as school teacher are mainly involved in teaching and interacting with students. Here not much work for field and laboratory. The zoologist (usually a post graduate in zoology or animal behavior or animal conservation subject) who work as Research Associate or Senior Research Fellow or Junior Research Fellow have responsibilities to work on the themes of the research project. These research projects are time bound projects, normally for three years but may be extended to another one year. The zoologist in research projects collect data, analyse it, and prepare the reports. The working knowledge of computer will be very helpful in such jobs.

The regular interaction and meetings with seniors, colleagues and some time with clients also keeps a zoologist busy.
