Sampler/Tester

Sampler testers assist engineers, technical officers and other laboratory staff by collecting and preparing samples, carrying out experiments, making measurements with scientific equipment, recording results and presenting results for critical analysis. Sampler/Testers carry out basic sampling and testing, record and present results and clean, maintain and set up equipment for use in experiments. They play an important role in manufacturing quality control.

Intelligence Analyst

Intelligence analysts evaluate information from a variety of classified and unclassified sources. This information is often incomplete, contradictory and can vary widely in terms of reliability. Depending on their background and qualifications, an intelligence analyst may examine a diverse set of countries, issues (such as terrorism) and cultures.

Chemist

Chemists study the physical and chemical properties of materials to determine their composition. They use this information to develop new materials and products, to devise more efficient processes for making materials and to increase scientific knowledge. Chemists should not be confused with pharmacists (see separate entry for Pharmacist).

Specialisations: Analytical Chemist Environmental Chemist Geochemist Industrial/Production Chemist Organic Chemist Physical Chemist Research Chemist

Toxicologist

Toxicologists study the harmful effects of chemical, physical and biological agents on living organisms by detecting and examining the symptoms, mechanisms and treatments of poisoning (especially the poisoning of people). They also determine safe or acceptable levels of exposure to particular agents.

Specialisations: Analytical Toxicologist Clinical Toxicologist Environmental Toxicologist/Ecotoxicologist Forensic Toxicologist Occupational Toxicologist Regulatory Toxicologist

Life Scientist

Life scientists examine the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of humans, animals, plants and other living organisms to better understand how living organisms function and interact with each other and the environment.

Specialisations: Biological Scientist Marine Scientist

Mathematician

Mathematicians apply and develop mathematical principles to solve problems in all areas of the sciences, technology, social sciences, business, industry and commerce.

Specialisations: Applied Mathematician Mathematical Analyst Mathematical Modeller Pure Mathematician Scientific Programmer

Physicist

Physicists study the behaviour of the physical world at the most basic level and find practical ways to apply new knowledge gained from their research in areas of science and technology. Physicists are usually identified within three broad roles: • theoretical physicists, who develop theories or models of how particular aspects of the world work • experimental physicists, who test these theories, determining their limits and suggesting new approaches to them • applied physicists, who apply these findings in practical settings, such as within industry and through the introduction of new technology. There is interaction between all three roles and physicists generally have skills in each of these areas.

Specialisations: Astrophysicist Atmospheric and Environmental Physicist Atomic and Molecular Physicist Condensed Matter Physicist Cosmologist Medical Physicist Nanotechnologist Nuclear/Particle Physicist Optical Physicist

Biochemist

Biochemists study the chemistry of living systems to increase scientific knowledge and develop ways to apply this knowledge in areas such as medicine, veterinary science, agriculture, environmental science and manufacturing. Biochemistry provides a basis for all the life sciences.

Specialisations: Clinical Biochemist Industrial Biochemist Research Biochemist

Biotechnologist

Biotechnologists study plants, animals and microorganisms. They use this knowledge to develop uses for biological processes, which include creating products for pharmaceutical, agricultural, diagnostic and environmental use, and advancing industrial processes. Their work may incorporate the use of small molecule technologies, nanotechnology, bioinformatics and synthetic biology.

Botanist

Botanists study the biology of all types of plants to increase scientific knowledge and apply this knowledge in areas such as conservation and management of natural resources, agriculture, forestry, horticulture, medicine and biotechnology.

Specialisations: Forest Botanist Marine Botanist Plant Ecologist Plant Pathologist Plant Physiologist Plant Taxonomist

Landcare Worker

Landcare workers perform a range of tasks to maintain and restore native bushland and farmland.

Specialisations: Bushland Regenerator Environmental Field Officer

Geographic Information Systems Officer

Geographic information systems officers design, develop and customise geographic information systems and provide technical and analytical support to address issues such as environmental management, exploration and mining, land ownership and titles, urban and regional planning, utilities and asset management, and demographic marketing.
