5 Common Career Paths For a Research Assistant

Consultant

Consultants are individuals who were tapped by a company or an organization to work on a specific activity, depending on their field of expertise. They act as guides for the organization in undertaking projects that are related to their field. Consultants would usually assist organizations in planning, often giving advice when the need arises. They would, at times, take the lead in activities that involve data gathering and interpretation of data gathering results so that they can provide solid recommendations on actions that the organization may undertake. They may also guide the organization in implementing any changes brought about by their consultancy and in evaluating the effectiveness of the changes.

Doctoral Fellow

A doctoral fellow is a physician that has completed studies and receives a fellowship to cover his/her or her expenses while completing his/her or her medical dissertation. A doctor fellow undergoes this fellowship to get additional training for their chosen sub-specialty. During the fellowship period, a fellow can act as an attending physician or consultant physician with other physicians' direct supervision in the sub-specialty field.

Research Scientist

The job of research scientists is to design, undertake, and analyze information from experiments, trials, and laboratory-based investigations. They usually perform experiments in different areas, including medical research, pharmacology, and geoscience. They have varied duties and responsibilities that include planning and carrying out experiments, conducting fieldwork, and overseeing junior staff members like the technicians. They are typically working for a government laboratory, an environmental agency, and other organizations. Many of these scientists also work in teams and support staff.

Laboratory Technician

Laboratory technicians are medical professionals who work in the laboratory. They are responsible for the equipment in the laboratory, making sure tools are properly sanitized and sterilized after every use. They also ensure that laboratory equipment works well. Laboratory technicians may also be responsible for collecting and testing samples from patients. They prepare solutions and other chemicals that may be needed for testing. They also provide an analysis of the samples that they tested. Laboratory technicians ensure that all items in the laboratory are properly labeled and organized.

Assistant

An assistant intern is responsible for facilitating administrative and clerical tasks as assigned by the management. Assistant interns' duties include keeping records of meetings, receiving calls and handling customer inquiries, assisting on writing reports and data entry processing, cooperating and providing support for business events, and adhering to company policies and regulatory procedures. Successful assistant interns must have excellent time-management, multi-tasking, and communication skills. They must be a team player and fast-learner to handle various tasks in the corporate industry.

How do I get a job as a research assistant?

To get a job as a research assistant, you should have a bachelor's degree and a general interest in conducting research in an academic or clinical setting.

Many research assistants are bachelor's students (or soon-to-be graduates). However, some research assistants have a master's degree or Ph.D. (e.g., postdoc research assistant fellowship).

Many students can find opportunities for a paid research assistant position at their university. It's a great opportunity for an undergraduate or master's student to gain experience in a research role before deciding to apply to a Ph.D. program.

A good way to begin is to find out what type of research labs are available in your desired field of study. A good deal of research assistant roles is usually not paid or done for research credit.

However, there are still opportunities to find paid research positions. Many labs work off grants, which they use to allocate funds to have one or several paid research assistants working on the study. These paid positions are usually harder to get without prior lab experience.

If you don't have much on-the-job experience, you should include things like this on your resume;

  • Experience from when you conducted a research project

  • Any technical skills you've honed that relate to the job (for example, a research assistant for a social scientist may need to be comfortable questioning subjects, so any experience interviewing others would be an asset)

  • A short summary of an independent study or thesis project, if you've done one

  • Any additional strengths, like statistical analysis skills, fluency in a foreign language, or relevant computer skills

Learn more about this question

What qualifications do you need to be a research assistant?

The qualifications you need to be a research assistant are a bachelor's degree (or in the process of earning one) and a keen interest in the research process.

The duties of a research assistant can vary throughout the life of a research project. In the early stages, you may be required to look for grants or funding opportunities. Many research projects cannot be undertaken without funding from an overseeing body such as a government department, research council, or private company.

Research assistants can be asked to prepare supporting material and help develop a proposal to secure funding.

Research assistants may also be responsible for planning the research project, coordinating tasks, preparing surveys, scheduling interviews, and identifying statistical models and analysis techniques to use.

In the middle stages of the project, research assistants may collect, analyze and interpret data. To do this, they will use data analysis techniques and use graphs, tables, and charts to present key findings.

Finally, towards the end of the project, they may need to prepare a written discussion of the findings and help produce reports or articles. The research team may need to present the outcome of the research project at a conference to the funding agency or any other interested parties.

Research assistants commonly help prepare material such as presentation slides and posters for these conferences. Also, they help in carrying out the following;

  • Carrying out experiments and research in alignment with protocols set by senior team members.

  • Collecting and recording data.

  • Conducting analyses of datasets.

  • Preparing models to display results.

  • Reviewing academic literature.

  • Creating presentations based on key results.

  • Fact-checking, editing, and proofreading research documents for accuracy and consistency.

  • Maintaining laboratory equipment and inventory.

  • Recruiting study participants.
