How to hire a freelance physicist
What does a physicist do?

A physicist studies the structure and behavior of matter through observations and experiments. Physicists can specialize in a wide range of subfields such as astrophysics, biological physics, computational physics, nuclear physics and fluid dynamics. Theoretical physicists develop mathematical models and devise theories. Experimental physicists observe nature and carry out experiments to explain natural phenomena.  


A large number of physicists work in research and academia. However, many are also employed in diverse industries such as oil & gas, automotive, finance, health & medicine, manufacturing and manufacturing. 

Why hire a physicist

Physicists are known to be problem-solvers and have a strong hold on problems that require analytical skills. For this reason they are not just employed in traditional jobs but also in jobs that require specialist math skills such as banking and finance. 


As the gig economy takes over, freelance physicists are increasingly being hired on an on-demand basis. Educational content creators may hire a freelance physicist to simplify complex concepts, and large businesses may hire astrophysicists to analyze large amounts of data.  


Consulting a physicist online for a short-term project is beneficial in particular for smaller organizations, who cannot offer to hire physicists in-house.

How much does it cost to hire a physicist?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean annual salary for a physicist is USD 123,080. The highest salaries for PhD-qualified physicists are in the medical sector, with an average of USD 177,420.


Up until now, businesses were unable to access physicists for one-off projects. However it is now becoming easier to hire physics experts online, as more and more qualified researchers and academics turn to consulting. 


On Kolabtree, physicists charge hourly rates starting from USD 50, or charge a fixed fee based on your project requirements.

How to write an effective job post to hire a physicist

While writing a job post to hire a physicist, make sure that you define the challenge you’re facing clearly. Here are a few items to include in your job description:


  • Scope of work: Define the challenge you are facing, the expectations and the end goal you are trying to achieve.
  • Duration: Provide an estimate of how long you expect the project to run for.
  • By when you need to hire: Choose how long you’re willing to keep your job open for applications. A week can give you enough time to interact with multiple freelancers so that you pick the best candidate.
  • Budget: Choose to pay either a fixed fee or by the hour. You can increase the scope of the project and change your budget at any time, based on your mutual agreement with the freelancer.
  • Skills required: Physicists specialize in a vast variety of fields, and Kolabtree provides you access to specialist experts. Choose from:

Theoretical Physics Astrophysics Biophysics Computational Physics Solar Physics Applied Physics Geophysics Statistical Physics Mathematical Physics Nuclear Physics Particle Physics
