jobs that research statistics and variables and accuracy of experiments?

Recommended Posts

Are there any science careers that focus on the scientist looking at the variables and seeing how accurate the experiment is?or do scientists do everything, create experiment consider all aspects and test them? I am really interested in analyzing all the variable to try to see if there are any variables that weren't considered and could be effecting the results. I am interested in measuring how accurate the experiment really is. For instance it looks at how many women versus men are in this experiment , what their health conditions are, what their religions and living conditions are in order to make the experiment more accurate.I really want to either get a science job,or at least be involved in a scientific community. I have just been trying to figure out what I want to do in life because the major I am in right now I realize is not what i really want to do, and its too late to switch majors.

As John said, a decent study will adjust for these variables, but there are also specialized researchers (i.e. statisticians) that are typically part of these studies.

I regularly see jobs advertised under 'mathematics', where really there are looking for statisticians to work on various things. Often these jobs are related to bioinformatics, social sciences and similar. I have seen job adverts that do talk about experimental design, which seems closest to what you are asking about.

In our company we mainly work as a team chosen by particular talents for each project, all the projects we do are lead by a head scientist who is ultimately responsiable for the results and accuracy of data.
