Work Environment

Pharmacologists work in academic settings or laboratories and generally work 40 hours a week, though they may sometimes be required to work extra hours to monitor experiments that need special attention.

Because pharmacologists perform such a vital role with respect to drug and chemical research, their laboratories tend to be fairly up to date.
