Field assistants collect samples and perform analysis at sites of interest. Often these are potential or existing mines, areas where environmental impact assessment is taking place or development and clearing has been proposed. The type of information gathered depends mainly on the project type and area of expertise of the scientist or team being assisted, for example:

  • Geology
  • Botany
  • Marine Biology

Employment opportunities often exist for new graduates with bachelor degrees and work experience and laboratory skills are particularly well regarded.
