What are some careers that involve writing and science?

Those are my two passions. I'm lucky enough to have a passion, as some spends years attempting to find it. However, I've been having trouble finding a career that incorporates the two. Any suggestions?

You can work for a science magazine or write sci-fi books or become a science teacher

Do not bother being a science teacher; the hassle isn't worth it. There are several respectable science journals out there, see if one will give you a shot. You say that one of your passions is "writing", but what *kind* of writing? Journalism? Stories? Novels? Reporting? Stay out of teaching until it once again becomes a respected profession, probably in another 20 years. You mention your passion is "science", but what kind, again? "Science" is too broad a topic...and do you have any scientific education or experience? One of my passions is popcorn, but damned if I know how to grow it. Good luck, but do some serious thinking about what I've said. BTW I've been teaching "science" for 17 years.

take a skills assessment at www.iseek.org and see what carriers would be a fit for you. they are sorted by education level by tabs on the top, high school, some college, 2 yr, 4 yr college, ect... They are also sorted by highest income paying job first.
My passion is SCIENCE and MATH. I'm aspiring to be a Nutritionist, pharmacist, or business manager.
You could pursue being a RN or a regular doctor, there is a lot of paperwork and writing involved in healthcare, or any job really.

Science writing encompasses a wide variety of niches that can include writing for newspapers, mass-market magazines, trade publications, university press offices, broadcast media, and newsletters, among many other venues. But regardless of where you end up publishing -- most writers end up working several of the venues listed above -- a great way to learn the terrain is to listen to others who already work in the field, either on the writing side or the hiring -- that is, the editing -- side.

That's why in preparing this feature we queried established writers and editors on many of the issues we remember facing when we were first getting started: deciding what training is best, what markets are most accessible and lucrative, how to get that very first gig, and practical, day-to-day concerns like accounting and dealing with taxes.
