Employment Resources and Professions Available to Parasitology Graduates

Many parasitologists are employed either in the heath or agricultural industries. They can work in a hospital environment, working with microbiologists and general practitioners to diagnose and treat diseases. They also work to develop new vaccines against parasitic diseases. Agencies such as the World Health Organization and Health Canada employ parasitologists in the area of public health and epidemiology.

In the animal world, veterinary parasitologists are employed to control the diseases of domestic animals. The agriculture and aquaculture industries are dependent upon parasitologists to assist in keeping food sources safe and reliable from disease.

Pharmaceutical companies are an important source of employment for parasitologists, where they develop chemotheraputic drugs to eliminate the parasites of economically important animals.

Career opportunities exist for parasitologists to work with wildlife managers in the development of programs to protect animals in their natural environment. Parasitologists working for government agencies, industry, and universities survey wild animals for parasites and disease, and develop strategies to reduce the negative impact of parasites on wildlife populations. Monitoring parasites in wild animals that are capable of being transmitted to humans is another important function of parasitologists.

Parasitologists can also work in an academic environment. Often, parasitologists serve as instructors of invertebrate zoology or immunology in many biology departments.

A degree in parasitology can be used for further studies in medicine, veterinary science, or microbiology.
