Job Description for Metrologist

Science relies on the ability of scientists to make precise measurements, but just as one can use a calculator without a thorough understanding of how mathematics work, scientists are not generally tasked with having a thorough understanding of the underpinning principles of the instruments they use. The equipment a scientist uses requires precise voltages to work, for example, but the user need not understand electrical theory to use it as intended. Metrology is the branch of science which seeks to understand these concepts and correctly apply them to various tasks; the people who work in the discipline are called metrologists.
