Epigenetics Researchers

Work Environment

Epigenetics researchers spend the majority of their time in laboratories—designing and conducting experiments and assessing their results. Outside the laboratory, researchers prepare reports about their research, write grant proposals to request funding for their work, and, if they are also professors, teach students about the field. Epigenetics researchers typically work with other scientists, lab technicians, and graduate assistants, so they need strong interpersonal and communication skills. Some researchers work a standard 40-hour week, while others work 50 to 60 hours a week, including at night and on weekends.
