While working with my personal statement consulting student, he turned around to me ask this very question:
What do you call a person who works in a lab?
At first, I couldn’t give him a straight answer because I felt like many possibilities were true. So, I decided to do some research and share with all of you, the results.

Other Terms use for “Someone Who Works in a Lab”
In Spanish the person who works in a LABORATORY is called LABORATORISTA
Casually, you could call them “lab rats,” or a “lab tech.”
The obvious, but sometimes overused term is “scientist.” It’s very accurate in many cases. Also, “biologist,” “chemist,” and other specific forms of specialists within science would apply.
