Careers in Mycology?
    #1557762 - 05/18/03 02:32 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am just curious if there are some interesting mycology related careers. Ones especially related to hunting and id'ing, but also everything else I would love to hear. Any information would be great hehe thanks.

Most of the people I know with a career in mycology involving hunting and IDing have a PhD in it, and most are academics. Most of the others work for the US Forest Service.

It's not a field with a lot of people, so you'll have to get a good degree to get anywhere. And the field is getting smaller. When Dr Orson Miller, Jr retired they replaced him with a molecular biologist, not a mycologist.

If that's what you really want to do, go for it. Expect to work hard to get your degree and a good job doing it.

If you're really interested in it, drop by your local university and talk to whatever mycologists they have about it.

Good luck!

Happy mushrooming!
