Ecological Research

Postby orbit » Sun May 20, 2007 1:23 pm


Hi all, I am an undergrad environmental science student here in Australia and am interested in following a career in applied ecology. There is a centre for applied ecology at my uni. To do any work with them though, I would have to at least do an honors year, and probably more post grad work. I am not sure if it would really be that easy for me to study for that long given family commitments. Also, my grades probably good enough to into an honors program anyway. Can anyone tell me, is there any chance of getting a job as a research scientist in this field with only a bachelor degree? Thanks.

Maybe as the barrel monkey on an IRONEX ship lol You need experience and weight behind you to get into this field, get a Masters behind you then talk to some people...
