Scientists get down and dirty on job
By Beth Sussman, USA TODAY
Tired of sitting in a cubicle punching numbers and pushing papers? Imagine searching for whale feces or diving into the waste lagoon at a pig farm.
Those are among the 10 worst jobs in science, says the July edition of Popular Science magazine, out Tuesday.
Jobs on the list range from studying garbage to diving for hazardous materials to gravity research subjects and Olympic drug testers.
“We realized that the best jobs in science are just kind of boring,” Popular Science editor Mark Jannot says.
“But bad jobs are bad in amazing and funny and gross ways.”
The staff of Popular Science votes on the rankings based on personal judgments.
