Writing reports on experiments to be published
Each experiment should be thoroughly recorded and compiled into a report from the stage of planning to the end of the experiment. These reports will be able to help future researchers and also students hence you will need to write it in a comprehensive manner but simple enough for everyone to understand.
Being able to present your findings to an audience
What is the contribution of the research? Are there any new discoveries? Compile all the details and information to be presented to an audience. This way, you will be able to attract sponsors or providers who will fund your future research.
Being able to solve complex problems
The way to make new discoveries is extremely stringent and the process is rather complicated. With that said, you will need to think out of the box and look at things in another perspective to solve the problems or issues arose during the experiments.
Candidates will need to possess a degree to get into the Research Science industry. Depending on the field that you are interested to venture in, a different degree will be needed such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Biomedical Science, Mathematics or any of the relevant sort.
The working hours of a Research Scientist is regular work hours. However, you may be required to work overtime late into the evenings and even weekends to complete certain experiment or reports.
