Marine Biologists

Outlook

The Department of Labor predicts average employment growth through 2028 for wildlife biologists, including marine biologists. Ongoing changes in the earth's environment, such as global climate change and increased levels of heavy metals in the global water cycle, will most likely prompt more research and result in slightly more jobs in different subfields of marine biology. Education is extremely important in this field. Most marine biologists in basic research positions have a Ph.D. Those with just a bachelor's or master's degree often work as science or engineering technicians, high school biology teachers, and in nonscientist positions related to biology such as marketing, sales, publishing, and research management.
