Many job titles are common to each particular setting, but the job description varies depending on the institution. Curators, for example, are found in virtually every kind of museum, from art and science to history museums, as well as in botanical gardens and even corporations, even though the collections they deal with and their specific duties are very different. In Careers for Scholars, we examine the following career designations:
- university professor

- botanical garden curator
- animal behaviorist
This list is far from comprehensive—the settings and job titles for scholars can stretch to include all the different “ologies.”As you set out on your job search in your own specialized area of study, you will be able to add to the suggestions here and create your own tailor-made inventory.
