I happened to see a post on lifehacker about the five best places to "Set Up Shop" online. Has anyone set up a side "freelance bioinformatics" job. I was wondering if anyone here had experience running a pay-by-the-analysis bioinformatics freelancing job.
I have a PhD, quite a few publications in the field, a solid analysis tool-chain and experience using and integrating both public and private data. Any thoughts on deciding prices, ways to advertise services, etc.
For those with freelance bioinformatics experience I would love to know the general price that you charge for various services. Or are all of your prices negotiated at contract time, if so could you give an example of a project and what price you settled on. I know that each project is unique and requires varying levels of skill, time and background knowledge so there's a lot of room for interpretation.
Thanks for any thoughts,
