Chartered Scientist (CSci) is a professional qualification in the United Kingdom that is awarded by the Science Council through its Licensed member organisations. Holders of this qualification can use the post-nominal letters CSci.
Chartered scientists are professional scientists who are practising and/or advancing science at the full professional level and are individuals for whom scientific knowledge or practice at that level form an essential element of their role. Chartered scientists are characterised by their ability to deal with complex issues, both systematically and creatively and can make sound judgements in the absence of complete data to develop solutions to scientific problems and communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
The required standard for Chartered Scientist registration is a Masters-level science qualification (or equivalent) with four years of postgraduate work experience.
The standards of the Chartered Scientist designation are upheld by the Science Council’s Registration Authority, whose members are elected representatives from the Licensed Bodies and appointed experts from other areas.

Famous quotes containing the words scientist and/or chartered:
“Imagination could hardly do without metaphor, for imagination is, literally, the moving around in ones mind of images, and such images tend commonly to be metaphoric. Creative minds, as we know, are rich in images and metaphors, and this is true in science and art alike. The difference between scientist and artist has little to do with the ways of the creative imagination; everything to do with the manner of demonstration and verification of what has been seen or imagined.”
—Robert A. Nisbet (b. 1913)
“The chartered recountants take the thing to pieces and put it together again. They enjoy it. The artist takes it to pieces and makes a new thing, new things. He must.”
—Samuel Beckett (19061989)
