Research Scientist – Job Description

Posted by Simon Thompson on

Research scientists work in every area of scientific study, from chemistry through biology to medicine and maths – and everywhere in between, but what qualifications to be a research scientist?

The work is all about researching, conducting and analysing scientific experiments.

Specific disciplines will require different work requirements, but general duties will normally include working on and building up research proposals, creating, proposing and conducting experiments, analysing the results of those experiments, developing any products that might result and applying for grants to fund new or existing research projects.
