Scientists Are Sharing The Worst Stock Photos Of Their Jobs And They're Hilarious
Scientists are sharing bad stock photos of their jobs, and they are pretty incredible to behold.
A lot of the time it seems like the general public isn't really sure what scientists do day to day.
It seems stock photographers are no different, judging by these beauties.
Biophysics professor Nicole Paulk started things off by tweeting out this photo of a scientist examining a piece of dry ice like it was some element unknown to mankind.
Before long, the hashtag #badstockphotosofmyjob was born, with countless other scientists sharing stock images they've found of sexy scientists, astronomers wearing lab coats and safety goggles, and a whole load of scientists staring in amazement at a chicken.
They. Are. Amazing.
It appears some stock photographers think that science is something you do in your negligee. Note that she's wearing safety goggles and gloves to protect her from the science, but everything else is at risk from potential blue science spillages.
Still, at least sexy scientist didn't get all suited up, only to pour her science acid freestyle like a barman pouring shots.
Here we have a classic of the "WHY ARE YOU WEARING A LAB COAT" genre, which also shows another trope: Astronomers pointing at space.
Next up, we have a new subgenre of science stock photos: People listening to shit with stethoscopes for no discernable reason.
"After much stethoscoping, I can confirm this is a apple."
And tomatoes being injected with up to three science syringes at the same time.
Also soil, because why not.
Gather around scientists, and look at the pile of soil. For science.
Perhaps weirdest of all... *drumroll*... scientists with plants on their desk timing it with a ye olde egg timer.
And scientists eating the science.
Don't eat the science, scientists.
Now we get to the most prevalent of science stock photos: People in lab coats (because how else would you know they are scientists?) gazing in wonder at some science.
My face when the science doesn't work.
Anyway, check out the hashtag as there are some real beauties. We'll leave you with some stock images of the climate change scientist gods controlling the weather and a group of scientists staring in bafflement at a chicken.
Science is mostly about white people staring, usually at colored liquids, but also sometimes at chickens and grass — at least, according to stock photos. So real scientists on Twitter are posting their favorite representation fails with the hashtag #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob.
The whole thing started when Nicole Paulk, a biochemistry and biophysics professor at the University of California, San Francisco, was working on a presentation. “I was trying to find stock images that aren’t too stuffy and more realistic, that don’t show us with tweed jackets and elbow patches,” she says.
Instead, she found a scientist peering deeply at a chunk of dry ice. “No one on the planet, even a dry ice scientist, would ever do this,” she says — so she tweeted it. Turns out, there are a lot more photos where this came from. So science blogger and former chemist Yvette d’Entremont came up with the hashtag, #BadStockPhotosOfMyJob.
And friends, there’s a lot of staring. And also some rock nuzzling. It gets weird.
Cleanup in the biosafety level 4 lab, please.
Don’t blink, or the chicken wins.
Geologists’ secret rock-nuzzling technique, revealed.
If you can’t figure out what the chemical is after touching it with your bare skin — well, you could always sip it. (Don’t. Do not do this.)
The hourglass is state of the art scientific equipment. At least she’s wearing her personal protective equipment to watch grass grow, right?
In science, you have to use all your senses:
Scientists Share the Most Ridiculous Stock Photos of Their Jobs on Twitter
If you picture a scientist as a guy in a white lab coat who spends all day glaring at vials, you can blame popular media. A quick image search of the word scientist brings up dozens of stock photos that fit this stereotype. And when photos do diverge from the norm, things start to get weird. Now real-life scientists are sharing some of these bizarre depictions on Twitter using the hashtag #badstockphotosofmyjob.
Some stock photos contain errors that would go unnoticed by most members of the public. But show a professional a model posing with a beaker of dyed water, or a backwards double-helix, and they might have something to say.
Despite all the lab gear, safety rules are apparently broken all the time in stock photo world. On rare occasions fake scientists ditch the lab coats altogether for lingerie—or nothing at all.
Even more puzzling scientist stock photo trends include injecting plants with mysterious liquid and holding stethoscopes up to inanimate objects.
Fortunately, scientists from the real world are much better at their jobs than scientists in stock photos make them out to be. To get a clearer picture of how a scientist's job differs from the stereotype, check out some behind-the-scenes accounts of their work in the field.

Hurt her, so I pushed in about half the length and opened the tap so that the solution would work like a lubricant. Sveta began to crawl on my hips: - Oh. It tickles.
