How to hire a freelance botanist

A botanist, also known as a plant biologist, is a professional who dedicates his/her life to studying all forms of plants and fungi. They can investigate how human activity cause an impact on the environment, the systems that make plants grow and breed and the genetic composition of different species. 

The knowledge provided by botany experts can be applied to the development of programs to protect the environment, to the improvement of plant growth, to the identification and extraction of plant products that have medicinal properties, to the classification of new species and much more.

Botanists can further specialize in plant genomics, plant cell biology, food science and plant biochemistry.

The study of life processes of plants can increase our understanding on plant systems, which can be translated into solving agricultural challenges, solving pollution problems and improving food production and supply. Plant-based medicine is another promising area in the management of chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

What does a botanist do?

Botanists usually work as researches and lecturers at educational institutions. Others work in zoos, greenhouses, botanical gardens or plant-related laboratories. Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies can also employ botanists. Some choose to have field-related work. 

The high demand for food production has a huge impact on the environment. Botany experts investigate the impact of human activities on crop production and natural ecosystems, which are essential for sustainability. 

Legislation and policy making for protecting the environment can be another occupation for botanists. 

When working in the field, botanists use different equipment to collect and process plants, as well as photography as a form of documentation. From desert to rain forest, from underwater to urban environments, outdoor botanists can work under different climate conditions. 

In the laboratory setting, these professionals make use of several microscopic methods and techniques for staining and investigation.

Botanists tend to work in collaboration with agricultural scientists, ecologists, environmental scientists, microbiologists, viticulturists and toxicologists. Together, they can address complex challenges in our society, such as food supply, environmental issues and population growth.

Why hire a botany expert?

Botanist freelance consultants are highly sought after professionals who have solid scientific foundations in a variety of areas, and usually work in:

  • Mining industry
  • Agriculture, horticulture and food production 
  • Pollution, environment, conservation and restoration
  • Land and water
  • Pharmacological industry and drug development

Plant chemistry, plant cell biology and physiology are essential for these professionals to develop a deep understanding of plant processes on the microbiological, whole plant and population levels.

Research categories related to botany include plant metabolism, biochemistry, ecophysiology, genomics, evolution, biogenetics, membranes, signaling and synthetic biology.

In healthcare, there has been a lot of interest in the potential collaboration between botany experts, nutrition experts and physicians to elucidate the complex relationship between diet and chronic diseases.

How much do botany scientists charge?

A freelance botanist can provide specialized consultancy for a minimum price of 40 USD per hour. Plant science related projects that require long-term collaborations can have a fixed fee as opposed to hourly fees.

How to write an effective job to hire botany experts?

Hiring a botany scientist is an easy task through our platform. You only need to provide some basic information in order to post you job:

  •  Project description or scope of work: describe your project in details.
  •  Duration of the project: provide the final deadline for project completion.
  •  By when you need to hire: state the urgency of your search.
  •  Budget: state the amount that you want to pay per hour or per project.
  •  Skills required: specify which areas, expertise and experience that you require from the freelancer.

Once the job is posted, you can choose the most suited freelancer for your project and payment is only performed once you approve the results.

Plant science can greatly contribute to current issues in our society, such as pollution, food supply, natural resources, land and water conservation.

If you need to collaborate with a botany expert, post a job right now and within a few minutes you will be able to start connecting with highly qualified professional from all over the world.
