Chemists have 4 sub jobs; blue chemist, green chemist, orange chemist, and yellow chemist. It is possible to tell what sub job a particular chemist has before recruiting by looking at the stim pack that they are carrying. The color of the stim pack matches their sub job.
Chemists will engage in combat using either Pistols or Shortswords. In addition, they will attempt to buff you periodically when brought alongside you on a planet. Once recruited, a permanent status effect such as rage, jump boost, speed boost or glow will also be given to everyone entering your ship.
