French Phrases: French titles of scientists and researchers

The French job titles on this page refer to researchers and scientists in various fields. As you'll see, the good news is that most of these words are very similar to their English counterparts. The main thing to watch for is that some words have the ending -ogue rather than -ogiste (and in a few cases, both forms are possible).
