What programs intersect with ecology, marine biology, neuroscience, and public health?

Hi! I'm researching graduate programs and am looking to focus on ecology, neuroscience, and public health. I would love, for example, to study the brain of a specific animal and translate the findings into implications for public health and climate change. My bachelor's is in public health and I'm very interested in merging ecological sciences in the near future. If anyone has any leads as to where this intersection may lie, I would love to hear about it!

How do I go about starting a career in ecology and conservation ?

How do I go about starting a career in ecology and conservation? I’ve worked in healthcare for 14 years and need to be out asap. I love science and want to have meaningful work just need to be away from healthcare. It’s hard to see that there is little care in healthcare, mainly just capitalism. I am hoping for a departure from that by going into ecology and conservation work. I’m just not sure where to start.

My dream careers are centered around wildlife rehabilitation and conservation. However, I am not sure what the best majors and minors are for this field (environmental science, biology, wildlife conservation, etc.). Has anyone had this same experience? Can anyone who has these careers give me advice for what to major and minor in?

What kind of jobs with UNESCO World Heritage?

I am really interested in historical conservation and heritage sites and am curious to know what opportunities to work in this sector are offered through UNESCO WHC. What do field work opportunities look like? What does working at HQ look like? Are most positions on a volunteer basis or do they offer longer term paid positions? I speak both French and English fluently and will be graduating with a Bachelor's of Architecture and a minor in History; how could I put these skills to good use by working for UNESCO? #unesco #unescowhc #architecture #conservation

How to propose to professor ready for research?

Next semester I am transferring to a new school as a junior. After e-mailing two professors about an independent research class, one e-mailed back mentioning that while I have a lot of research experience, students in their first semester are not normally approved to do independent research and I should contact the other teacher about it. If the other teacher says similar, what would be a good response in hopes to persuade them? My first e-mail listed previous experience and what topics interest me for research and what skills I hope to gain. I thought it may be beneficial to provide the teacher's contact information that previous research was conducted under since she knows what I am capable of and has seen how hard I work. My first semester will also be an easier semester since I am taking two ecology classes (one with lab) that cover some of the same material (both prerequisites for diff. classes I hope to take), plus an Intro to Biology 2 class taken already covered many different ecology topics. Two other classes will be taken that have no lab component and are intro classes. Should I include the information that the semester would not be too demanding with other classes which would make it beneficial to include the research class? What other information should I include? #ecology #conservation #college #research

Wildlife Biology or Wildlife Biology with a concentration in Wildlife Rehabilitation?

Next year, I will be transferring to a school and pursuing a Wildlife Biology Bachelor's degree. Originally, the Wildlife Biology degree with a concentration in Wildlife Rehabilitation interested me because I thought the rehabilitation concentration would provide increased skills. My career goal is wildlife conservation/research. The concentration requires specific classes that focus on wildlife education (public presentations) and rehabilitation skills. Would the concentration take away or add to my competitiveness for wildlife conservation? The concentration does require a clinical at the rehabilitation center and originally I saw it as a way to increase my animal handling skills that would provide animal handling experience for future wildlife monitoring/research work. My other electives classes will be focusing on ecology and field classes. #ecology #conservation #biology #veterinary

Should I choose a minor that is easily utilized if my major is specific to a certain field?

I would like to major in conservation biology or wildlife biology, but it seems like a very difficult field to become employed in, and I was planning on minoring in psychology because I am interested in behavior and thought it would compliment a biology degree. However, would it be better to minor, or double major, in a more career-oriented field? Such as business, marketing, liberal arts, etc. They aren't especially interesting topics for me, but would they serve well as a backup plan? #conservation #wildlife-biology #business #marketing #liberal-arts #choosing-a-major #choosing-major ##choosing-a-minor #choosing-a-career #psychology #majors-and-minors #interests
