Many students don’t realise that there is more to a career in science than just working in a lab. To show students this potential, COSMOS teamed up with the University of Melbourne to create a free 28-page Careers in Science guide. It can be read online as an e-book, downloaded as a PDF or you can order free print copies. Inside, students will find out the many ways scientists are tackling the challenges society is up against – biodiversity loss, climate change, resource shortages – and how they can get involved.

The Careers in Science guide reviews six of the big challenges facing our world, from population growth and energy use to health care, security and sustainable cities. There are 33 inspirational interviews with University of Melbourne scientists at all stages of their careers.  The Careers in Science guide shows how students can construct a rewarding and interesting career in science, study options they can take to make it happen, and some of the great minds who have successfully made an impact - including Nobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn.
