Biologists study life and living organisms, and they typically specialize in subcategories, like microbiology or physiology. Resumes in this field highlight such responsibilities as conducting experiments with mice and rats, as well as cells; performing animal surgeries; and using molecular biology approaches to look at changes in genetic levels. A bachelor's degree in biology, biological sciences, or a related discipline is sufficient for entry-level careers in this field, but sample resumes show that advanced research and teaching careers require a doctoral degree.
