    Start an activity in something

    Hello,

    Is it idiomatic to say "Start an activity in something" ? What else could I say?

    "He started his activity, on the advice of his supervisor, in the field of "bacteriology" as a laboratory assistant at the Microbiology Laboratory of his university."

    Thanks.

    Re: Start an activity in something

    The sentence is too long and too complicated.

    Based on the advice of his supervisor, he started working as a laboratory assistant at the Microbiology Laboratory of his university.
