How to hire a bioinformatics consultant

The field of bioinformatics has expanded at a rapid pace over the last two decades with the emergence of increasingly large datasets (aka “big data”) and the need to map complex biological associations. This growth has been spurred onward by the rise of the various ‘omics fields, including genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics.

What does a bioinformatics consultant do?

Bioinformatics experts combine skills from various disciplines including computer science, mathematics, life sciences, information technology, and statistics to help answer scientific questions. They develop and apply models, algorithms, and software to collate, manage, and interrogate complex biological data.

Bioinformatics consulting varies according to the area of life science research it is serving. For example, bioinformaticists analyze genomes to look for different types of genetic variation, they perform image processing where data is captured by, e.g., microscopy, they build and apply in silico models of biological molecules and their interactions, and in systems biology, bioinformaticists synthesize data from different sources to build up databases of biological pathways and networks. For these purposes, bioinformaticists tap into specialist skills such as text mining, ontology, machine learning, statistics, information architecture, computer programming, and the building of user interfaces.There are also bioinformatics content writers, who specialize in writing in this area for academia, media, and industry.

Bioinformatics scientists typically have a master’s or doctoral degree from a university. They are sought after and work in a variety of sectors, including academia, pharma, healthcare, IT, and biotechnology. Their job titles range between Bioinformatics Analyst, Bioinformatics Developer, Bioinformatics Engineers, Bioinformatics Scientist, Computational Biologist, Data Analyst, Genome Analyst, Scientific Database Curator, and Systems Analyst.

How much does it cost to hire bioinformatics experts?

Bioinformatics experts are highly skilled specialists who are in demand globally. For bioinformatics freelance consulting services, the fee generally ranges from 40–150 USD per hour depending on how specialized the required skillset is 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 bioinformatics services, then hiring a freelance consultant is a convenient and cost-effective way to access this talent pool.

How do you write an effective job post to hire bioinformatics scientists?

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

  • Skills required (e.g., specific programming languages)         
  • What the project area is (e.g., looking at the pathways upregulated in cancer tissue)      
  • What the project entails (e.g., proteome annotation and pathway analysis)       
  • 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 expertsto still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward. Our platform makes it easier than ever before to connect and collaborate with bioinformatics experts, allowing you, the client, to get maximal value out of your data.
