How to hire an infectious disease expert

Infectious diseases are responsible for millions of deaths each year and contribute significantly to the global healthcare burden. Experts in infectious disease are at the frontline in dealing with pathogens, by assisting with patient management, conducting research, and driving public health initiatives.

What does an infectious disease expert do?

Infectious disease specialists help to diagnose, treat, and control infectious diseases affecting human and animal populations. These are diseases caused by certain viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and parasites. Many of these specialists are medical doctors or veterinarians who work mainly in a clinical setting, whereas others pursue research on various aspects of infectious disease.

The typical responsibilities of infectious disease scientists can include:

  • Reviewing referrals from other physicians in cases of complex infections, drug-resistant infections, or where an infection is otherwise difficult to manage

  • Running diagnostics for patients with a fever of unknown origin 

  • Assisting with the management of patients with immunodeficiencies 

  • Recommending the appropriate diagnostic tests and treatments for infectious disease patients in hospitals and clinics

  • Developing and managing public health surveillance programs to monitor and control the spread of known and emerging infectious diseases

  • Developing and implementing diagnostic testing for routine clinical use and in outbreak settings 

  • Investigating how infectious disease is spread, what the risk factors are, and which treatments are most effective

  • Investigating the emergence of drug resistance, including how pathogens adapt through mutation

  • Studying the mechanisms of natural resistance in people who are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic

  • Researching the pathogenicity of infectious diseases, to understand what factors influence the pathogen-host interaction and modulate the severity of disease 

  • Participating in public education on symptoms and prevention measures

  • Consulting regarding the best practices for preventing disease outbreaks in clinical settings, including outbreaks of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections

  • Assisting with outbreak investigations and management at the local, regional, national, and global levels 

  • Travel medicine consulting, advising individuals and business about the risks and preventative measures related to infectious diseases encountered during travel

  • Advising public health policies regarding prevention, immunization, and vaccination

This specialty requires a medical degree (M.D.) as well as several years of additional specialist training, typically as an internist with a focus on infectious disease. Infectious disease experts have various job titles that can include Clinical Infectious Disease Specialist, Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist, Infectious Disease Physician, and Veterinary Infectious Disease Specialist. There are also infectious disease content writers, who specialize in writing in this field for the media, government, business, and academia.

How much does it cost to hire an infectious disease consultant?

The annual salary for this field is one of the highest in public health. While the demand for infectious disease specialists is growing at above-average rates, the stringent educational requirements mean that there may not sufficient new entrants to meet this demand in the coming years. 

To hire a freelance infectious disease consultant, the fee generally ranges from 80–200 USD per hour depending on the required skill set and the level of experience necessary. 

The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, or a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to infectious disease consulting services, then hiring a freelance consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to access their expertise.

How do you write an effective job post to hire an infectious disease expert?

The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide details on the following:

  • Skills required (e.g., expertise regarding emerging infectious diseases)

  • What the project area is (e.g., public health)

  • What the project entails (e.g., improving the national surveillance program)

  • What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)

  • Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)

  • By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)

  • Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)

If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward. 

The Kolabtree platform makes it easier than ever before to rapidly connect and collaborate with top infectious disease consultants to provide your projects with the required expertise.
