How to hire an applied mathematician

Applied mathematicians use mathematical principles to develop solutions to real-world problems. This may involve analyzing a data set, designing a mathematical model or conducting a statistical analysis. Applied mathematics can overlap with several disciplines such as computer science, economics, engineering, business, physics, biology, and more. 


Applied mathematicians are employed in various sectors, depending on their area of expertise. They may hold academic positions or may work with corporates, governments or even nonprofits. Many of them work in the R&D or data analysis departments of large organizations. However, smaller organizations can also benefit from hiring applied math experts.  


You may need a mathematical modelling consultant to develop an equation or formula. This could be a one-off project and you may not require the expert to work in-house. Hiring a freelance mathematics consultant can help you access the skills you need easily. However, how do you go about choosing the right expert for your project? Here’s a quick guide for hiring freelancers on Kolabtree.

What does an applied mathematician do?

Applied mathematics experts can help with: 


  • Developing a statistical or mathematical model
  • Optimizing processes and workflows of a company for better efficiency
  • Finding ways a business can be more profitable
  • Analyzing how a disease may spread (epidemiology) 
  • Finding patterns in data and using them to drive decisions


… and so on. They play a role in just about every field you can think of, from designing robots to designing clinical trials. If you are, for example, a small medical device organization working on a clinical trial, you may need the help of a mathematics expert to validate the data. Hiring a freelance math PhD on Kolabtree can help you access the skills you need, at short notice. This is a win-win situation for both the organization as well as the freelancer, who gets to work on a high-impact project. 


On Kolabtree, companies have hired freelance mathematicians of all kinds: data science consultants, statisticians, applied mathematical programming experts, and more.

How much does it cost to hire an applied mathematician?

According to PayScale, the average salary of an applied mathematician is USD 100,000. This is a fairly high salary for a small organization or startup to afford. However, mathematics experts worldwide are making themselves available for freelance or remote work, which is of great advantage to organizations with limited budgets. 


On Kolabtree, applied mathematics projects can range from USD 500 for a simple task to USD 8,000 for a complex, time-intensive project.

How to write an effective job post for an applied mathematician

The key to hiring a good freelance mathematician is to write a job post that defines exactly what you’re looking for. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you create the job description. This will ensure that you receive detailed proposals from freelancers whose skills are a perfect match for your project. 



  • Scope of work: Write a project or job description that defines the main goal of your project and the challenge you’re looking to overcome. If your project is very large and complex, you can break it down into smaller milestones. Mention any special skills or research experience that you would like the ideal candidate to have. 
  • Duration:  Specify how long you expect the project to take. If you’re not in a hurry, be flexible with your timelines as this will increase your chance of getting more applicants. 
  • By when you need to hire: If you have an urgent project at hand, mention that you’re looking to hire someone at short notice. This will work well for tasks that involve a simple data analysis. However for larger tasks which may involve building mathematical models or writing algorithms, a week or more is a good span of time to keep your project applications open. 
  • Budget: The fees for mathematics projects can vary, depending on the nature of the job at hand. If you’re not sure about your budget, please feel free to pick a placeholder budget and explain that you would like more details from the freelancer to arrive at a realistic estimate.
  • Skills required: Many Kolabtree mathematicians have a PhD in subjects ranging from machine learning to astrophysics. Choose from a variety of experts such as
