I work in a team. My “boss” is my team’s leader and we work with various other teams on projects together. Our group specializes in modeling the ocean, they call us oceanographers. Other teams are made up of marine biologists, molecular biologists (geneticists), habitat modellers, ecosystem modellers, etc etc etc. We all provide our skills to projects, one person cannot do it all.
It is a wonderful way to work. Although at times frustrating as well since everyone has their own ideas and it can be hard to come to a consensus if you do not have a clear goal to aim for.
I work both by myself and as part of a bigger team – it depends on which part of the project I am working on. The team includes the doctors and nurses who collect the specimens in theatre, the pathologists if the specimens need to be assessed for cancer or other disease and then other scientists. I perfomr most of the lab work myself and then meet with the other memebers of the team to talk about what we have found and what it might mean.
I work in a small team of 4 people. We all do work on closely related things, and we can always go to each other for help or if we have questions. Sometimes if a really big or important job comes up we will all work on it together, but most of the time we are focussed on our own individual research projects.
I work within a team on my own project. So a bit of both – I have my own research questions that I’m trying to answer, and then I will also work with other members in my group on other projects, and help them out when needed.
Both. Depends on the project. Sometimes we work on different parts of a project and then put it together at the end other times, we work together the whole way.
