CAREER PROFILES

  home > resources > careers > career profiles

Options and Insights

Oceanography magazine includes a recurring column on "career profiles" of marine scientists who have pursued successful and fulfilling careers outside of academia. These profiles are intended to advise ocean sciences graduate students about career options other than teaching and/or research in a university setting.


 

Call for Profiles

Oceanography needs your help to make this careers column a success. Finding the right subjects is a challenging task, and Oceanography needs suggestions about who to profile. Please consult your roots, your rolodex, or your iPhone or Blackberry contacts folders and provide Oceanography with information about people you know whose career paths might inspire and inform the next generation. Do you have suggestions? Please send their contact information to ekappel@geo-prose.com.
