Job Description for Research Scientist

A research scientist is a scientist who works primarily with gathering knowledge and understanding research. While many scientists are employed in applied scientific fields that involve development and design work, a research scientist typically can be found in academic settings or similar areas. Because these scientists are engaged in pure research work that may not have immediate application in the business or consumer world, they tend to rely on grants and funding from academic and charitable foundations. Research scientists typically perform experiments, make observations, and create detailed papers of their findings for peer review and publishing.

  • Conduct research in a particular field of knowledge, and publish findings in professional journals, books, and/or electronic media.
  • Keep abreast of developments in their field by reading current literature, talking with colleagues, and participating in professional conferences.
