How to hire a chemist

A chemist studies the composition of existing substances and formulates new products that have practical applications. Chemists work in a diverse range of industries, predominantly in pharma, life sciences and food & drink organizations. 


You may need to find a chemist to make a product, conduct a literature review or research an existing product. But what do you look for and how can you choose the best candidate for the job? Here are some tips for hiring top chemists on Kolabtree.

Why hire a chemist

While many chemists work in traditional full-time roles, there is an increasing number of freelance chemists for hire. This helps organizations access and afford expertise quickly, at short notice. 

 

When you set out to create a new product, you require the skills of an expert chemist who can make sure that it meets industry standards. Food startups, for example, need to work with chemists to verify that their products follow regulatory compliance. Cosmetic companies may hire cosmetic chemists to formulate skin care products and test them to ensure safety.

How much does it cost to hire a chemist?

The cost of hiring a chemist largely depends on the scale and the scope of work you need done. 

 

A freelance formulation chemist may charge anywhere between USD 500 and USD 5,000 to help with developing a new product. However, they may charge more to help with additional services such as product labeling, filing a patent or developing the communication material required for the launch of the product. 

 

For short-term tasks, hiring a freelance chemist over a full-time chemist can cut costs of up to 40%.

How to write an effective job post to hire a chemist

Here are five things to keep in mind to help you write a clear job post for a chemist: 

 

Scope of work: Provide a clear outline of the goal of your project and the deliverable(s) expected. For example: Need a freelance cosmetic chemist to create a vegan skincare product. Samples required for testing within 2 months.  

Duration:  Define how long you expect the project to run for. 

By when you need to hire: Do you need to hire someone within a few days, weeks, or longer? A week is an optimum time to receive high-quality proposals.  

Budget: Try to provide a realistic estimate of your budget. You can choose to pay a fixed fee or pay by the hour.
Skills required: While looking for a chemist, you may need to define what kind of specialty you’re looking for. On Kolabtree, you can choose from:

Formulation chemists     Analytical chemists     Organic chemists     Inorganic chemists     Biochemists
