Career opportunities in Zoology:
Zoology is a science that involves the study of the animal kingdom, both living and extinct. Zoologists, as a result, are also referred to as Animal Scientists. Zoologists analyse the structure, life processes, physiology, and classification of different species in detail. They also analyse how different animals interact with each other and adapt to their environments. They conduct research on both the species and individual organisms by collecting and analysing data in laboratories and outdoor environments.
Career options after pursuing a B.Sc., M.Sc and Ph.D. in Zoology are varied. Candidates find opportunities in government departments, environmental agencies, universities, colleges, biotechnological, pharmaceutical, environmental/ecological fields.
After completing the course, an individual can enter into any field of zoology and zoological research. Students also have jobs in the media or the environmental and ecosystem management sector. After post-graduation, the aspirant can work with some of the most acknowledged ventures and organizations across the globe such as Discovery, National Geographic, and others.
The various job opportunities available for graduates of Zoology are:
- Junior scientific officer, Biology teaching in schools, Junior Zookeeper, Junior Zoology Research officer, Animal and Wildlife Conservationist.
- The various government jobs available for a post-graduate Zoology Candidate are:
- Assistant Professor, Research Associate, Wildlife Conservationist, Wildlife Campaign Officer, Field Officer, Wildlife Project Officer
- Jobs available in the private sector for a post-graduate Zoology candidate are:
- Wildlife media consultant, Naturalist, Assistant campaign officer, Wildlife project manager, Assistant Professor, Wildlife Programme officer, Zoologist, Associate Editor Zoology.
