I am interested in studying toxicology or eco-toxicology.
If I graduate with a Dr. degree, what would my daily work be as 
toxicologist (spelling?) or eco-toxicologist?
Where do they work?
Can a eco-toxicologist work as a toxicologist, and vice versa? 
Is there a big difference between those two fields of study?

How is the jobmarket in this field (in Europe: mainly Germany, France,
and Northamerica (Canada)?

Do Hospitals have toxicologists? If yes what do they do? 
Or does one have to be a who is specialized in toxicology?

Are a lot of toxin-tests still performed on animals? 
Which have been replaced, and which are still done on animals?
Does eco-toxicology also require tests on animals? If yes, which? 

Thank you, I am waiting anxiously for your answers!!!
