A scientist is a professional who uses the scientific method to acquire knowledge. They may specialize in one or more areas of science, such as astronomy, biology, or chemistry. Scientists may be employed by universities, industry, or the government. A scientist must have at least a bachelor's degree, and a doctoral degree if desiring a research position.
