I’ve looked at several careers and I can’t find the ‘perfect job’ that suits me. I’m interested in biology and medicine. I looked at becoming a doctor but it’s years at uni and the hours are quite bad. I’ve been looking at being a pathologist but I realised that I’d have to perform autopsies which I wouldn’t be keen on. Does a pathologist have to do autopsies?

A pathologist is a medical doctor. Not sure that being a biologist is a career as such. To work in research as a biologist you would normally need a phd.

Yes. A pathologist is also a doctor so it would still be years at uni and years of bad hours.

Is there any doctors who don’t have to work nights? I don’t fancy having to work nights but I really want to be a doctor

Plenty, e.g. GP for a start.

I, as a neuro doctor, also don't work nights.

Saying that, you would have to work nights as a trainee / junior doctor. There's no escaping that.
