How to hire a coronavirus expert

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are routinely found in wildlife, poultry, and livestock. Human coronaviruses were first identified in the 1960s, and there are now seven known human coronaviruses. Four of these can cause the common cold, while the other three are MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus), SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus), and now SARS-CoV-2, which emerged in December 2019 and is causing the global outbreak of the coronavirus-associated disease, COVID-19.

What expertise can coronavirus consultants offer?

Work on coronavirus research, surveillance, and management is cross-disciplinary and involves the expertise of different types of scientists and other professionals, including:

  • Virologists, who undertake coronavirus research to better understand their unique characteristics and the impact these have on coronavirus transmission, virulence, etc. 

  • Epidemiologists, who research the distribution and transmission of coronaviruses in animals and humans, and who develop strategies to reduce the risk and mitigate the effect of coronavirus-associated disease.

  • Mathematicians, who create mathematical models of coronavirus to predict how it will spread and the impact this will have. They can adjust different variables to forecast the effect these may have in real life. 

  • Bioinformaticians, who study coronavirus genomes and help to map the likely origin of outbreaks based on the small genetic differences that arise over time. 

  • Pharmacologists, who help to discover, develop, and test new/repurposed coronavirus drugs and vaccines.

  • Public health practitioners, who look for healthcare solutions at the community, population, national, and global levels and develop appropriate public health strategies and policies.

  • Chemists, who help to formulate hand sanitizers, wipes, and other disinfecting agents to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission. 

  • Biochemists, who help develop COVID-19 diagnostic kits specifically for SARS-CoV-2 or kits specific to other coronaviruses. These kits can either detect a current infection (DNA-based) or a past infection (antibody-based).

  • Healthcare professionals, including infectious disease specialists, immunologists, respiratory consultants, and ENT specialists, who specialize in the management and treatment of human patients with coronavirus-associated disease.

  • Engineers, who help to repurpose manufacturing plants for the design and production of face shields, face masks, respirators, and ventilators to assist with the shortages faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • Medical/science writers, who assist with online research and the writing of coronavirus-related content and reports, coronavirus fact-checking, performing in-depth coronavirus literature reviews, and formulating coronavirus research grants. 

Given their variety of specializations, coronavirus scientists and consultants are employed in a variety of sectors, including pharma, biotechnology, academia, government, health services, and research institutes. Most coronavirus experts have an advanced degree such as a master’s, Ph.D. or M.D.

How much does it cost to hire a freelance coronavirus consultant?

To hire a coronavirus consultant, 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 coronavirus expert services, then hiring a freelance consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to interact with these professionals.

How do you write an effective job post to hire a freelance coronavirus 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 information on the following:

  • Skills required (e.g., in-depth literature review)

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

  • What the project entails (e.g., what is currently known about the persistence of immunity in humans towards coronavirus infection)

  • 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. 

Kolabtree provides a safe and efficient platform for you to rapidly connect with coronavirus experts who can assist you with moving your projects forward.
