I have a couple of times read articles saying something like "If you have an IQ of 130 you can become a physician, high school math teacher or lawyer. If your IQ is 95 you can work at a kindergarten, as a waitress or taxi driver."

Obviously, these are just rough estimates combined with examples of potential careers and should be taken with a grain of salt. With that reservation made, is there any scientific research on this subject? What conclusions did they arrive at?

I want better sources than popular science.
