Research assistants help primary researchers complete research-oriented projects. They cannot conduct research independently; rather they work under the supervision of the primary researcher. As such, they cannot take credit for the work, but they are also not liable for mistakes.
Duties vary by job type, but research assistant jobs typically include obtaining documents, editing research and working with databases. In a clinical setting, a research assistant will also write up protocols and monitor trials.
To qualify for research assistant jobs, candidates need an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. They should be organized and work well in teams. Research assistants do a lot of proof-reading and editing, so a keen eye for detail is a necessity. Be prepared to double check and triple check work, which can be tedious at times.
