+ Chemists Job Description
Chemicals make up our world. Some are natural. Some are made by humans—synthetic. But each chemical has its own particular way of behaving under changing conditions such as heat, exposure to light, and combination with other substances. Chemists study how chemicals affect each other, and how they interact with the environment. Usually they specialize in a particular kind of chemistry. They use their knowledge to contribute to many different fields, from energy development to medicine and food processing > view more

+ Film Laboratory Technician Job Description
Before motion picture footage can be edited into a film, it has to be processed, prepped, transferred and digitized into an editing system. Film laboratory technicians process and prep the film for that transfer. These workers are involved in many tasks in a film processing facility, and may specialize. While it helps to have a discerning eye, some lab techs rely more on their sense of touch -- working comfortably and accurately in complete darkness! In order to show you this, we're simulating the procedures with the lights on > view more

+ Food Scientists and Technologists Job Description
Most of us take the safety of the food we eat—and its availability--for granted. Yet many visitors to America marvel at the variety and abundance on display in our grocery stores. Making sure that the food supply is steady and safe is the work of agriculture and food scientists. They are involved in just about every aspect of America’s diet. From the farm…to the processing plant…to the packagers…to the table, scientists work to make what’s good even better > view more

+ Forensic Science Technicians Job Description
Books and TV programs make the work of forensic science technicians seem fast-paced and exciting. In real life, however, their job is more likely to be as slow and painstaking as it is important. Forensic science technicians work at the scene of a crime…and in laboratories. They perform tests on weapons or they examine substances such as fiber, hair and tissue to determine a connection to the crime…and to a suspect > view more

+ Medical and Clinical Laboratory Technicians Job Description
When a doctor orders a series of tests on a patient, chances are that those tests will be performed by medical and clinical laboratory technologists. It is the job of these professionals to examine and analyze blood, urine, and other body fluids, tissue, and cells.
