Interview
With
Marine
Biologist,
Heather
Spence
Q: What advice would you give to aspiring marine biologists?
A: If you want to be a marine biologist, you will need to study and do well in your science classes. Choosing an independent research project can be a way to explore what interests you most. I enjoyed doing science projects in high school and in college I was fortunate to get funding for an intensive research project that gave me a chance to really investigate something I was interested in. I even hired other students to help me, which was also good experience for me. You will need to be able to write clearly, to document your work, and present your results. And you will need to publish in peer-reviewed journals.
If you love what you are doing, this can be a wonderful career: exciting, rewarding, satisfying.
Q: What are some things you dislike about your career?
A: Sometimes the job is discouraging, because progress can be slow and frustrating, and it seems like you are not getting anywhere and everything is going wrong. Also, a lot of your time is spent on administrative tasks and grant writing. However, it is still the job I love.
