Well being a business graduate I never knew that science could be
fascinating and that i'm actually quite good at it.
Anyway I recently read a book called super bugs and was fascinated
with microbiology and so here I am reading everything I can get my
hands on and also enrolled in a life sciences degree(microbiology
I guess my question is where to after that. I am particularly
interested in biological weapons and more importantly detection
systems etc and was just wondering where an interest like that could
lead career wise.
I guess at this stage all the study and reading is for my enjoyment
(as bad as that sounds). But sometime in the future I would really
like to make a career out of it. Whats teh basic qualifications etc
required for most biologists jobs?? or does it depend more on relevent
research (I am planning to have my degree finished in about 12 months)
In australia bachelors in most cases are only 3 years, and my uni of
choice has 4 crammed study periods per year).
So whats the next step ??? PHD via research etc ????
Any advice would be much appreciated
Best Regards Everyone.
