Life Scientist: Job Description, Duties, Salary and Scope

If you have an inquisitive mind and enjoy planning and working on experiments, being a research scientist could be for you

Researchers within life sciences are primarily involved in planning and conducting experiments and analysing results, either with a definite end use, for example to develop new products, processes or commercial applications, or to broaden scientific understanding in general.

As a researcher, you will usually carry out your experiments and research on your own, but you'll typically be part of a larger team and will share your findings and relevant information with professional colleagues. This is sometimes done at international conferences or through the publication of research papers.

You can find employment in commercial or government laboratories, hospitals and higher education institutions.

Types of work

Research within life sciences covers a whole range of scientific disciplines including:

  • bioinformatics;
  • biotechnology;
  • cancer studies;
  • genomics;
  • microbiology;
  • neurosciences;
  • pharmacology;
  • physiology;
  • plant sciences;
  • stem cell research.
