We calculated that 13% of Research Fellows are proficient in PHD, Research Projects, and Data Analysis.
We break down the percentage of Research Fellows that have these skills listed on their resume here:
- PHD, 13%
Assisted PhD candidate within the Department of Political Science in research focused on negative Congressional campaign advertisements.
- Research Projects, 7%
Supported time-sensitive scholarly research by authoring research projects, conducting literature reviews, collecting and analyzing data, and preparing manuscripts.
- Data Analysis, 6%
Developed automated data analysis routines, based on anti-correlative measurement strategies to differentiate instrument systematic error from physical mirror surface attributes.
- Molecular Biology, 6%
Investigated senescence and neoplasm mechanisms using molecular biology to genetically modify epithelial cell lines and profile the expression of difference cells.
- Cell Culture, 5%
Managed laboratory cell culture operations, including training lab personnel, writing protocols, and performing necessary troubleshooting and maintenance tasks.
- Immunology, 4%
Coordinated interdisciplinary research between the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the College of Science and Technology.
"phd," "research projects," and "data analysis" aren't the only skills we found research fellows list on their resumes. In fact, there's a whole list of research fellow responsibilities that we found, including: Communication skills can be considered to be the most important personality trait for a research fellow to have. According to a research fellow resume, "communication is critical, because medical scientists must be able to explain their conclusions" research fellows are able to use communication skills in the following example we gathered from a resume: "visited the fda, pitched our devices to investors,submitted progress reports for grants, and published in nature communications. " While it may not be the most important skill, we found that many research fellow duties rely on observation skills. This example from a research fellow explains why: "medical scientists conduct experiments that require precise observation of samples and other health-related data." This resume example is just one of many ways research fellows are able to utilize observation skills: "collaborated with laboratory technician to ensure optimal cell storage techniques, monitor gene maturation through observation of dna patterns. "

We've found that 47.3% of research fellows have earned a bachelor's degree. Furthermore, 18.4% earned their master's degrees before becoming a research fellow. While it's true that most research fellows have a college degree, it's generally impossible to become one with only a high school degree. In fact, one out of every ten research fellows did not spend the extra money to attend college.
Those research fellows who do attend college, typically earn either a chemistry degree or a biology degree. Less commonly earned degrees for research fellows include a biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology degree or a psychology degree.
When you're ready to become a research fellow, you might wonder which companies hire research fellows. According to our research through research fellow resumes, research fellows are mostly hired by Mayo Clinic, Emory Healthcare, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Now is a good time to apply as Mayo Clinic has 69 research fellows job openings, and there are 51 at Emory Healthcare and 35 at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
If you're interested in companies where research fellows make the most money, you'll want to apply for positions at JHU Applied Physics Laboratory, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, and IBM. We found that at JHU Applied Physics Laboratory, the average research fellow salary is $86,582. Whereas at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, research fellows earn roughly $85,788. And at IBM, they make an average salary of $77,929.
