What does an Associate Research Assistant do?
Post doctorate research associates perform research as an on-staff role at a college or university. They conduct in-depth research, usually focused on a particular targeted area or specific subject, often in a scientific or medical discipline. They may supervise some laboratory or research staff, and may also help provide research training to graduate students. They may perform experiments, coordinate research studies, conduct surveys and interviews, or gather data through electronic methods. They perform data analysis, and write and publish papers detailing their research and its outcomes.
Post doctorate research associates have a doctorate degree in their field of expertise, and broad knowledge of that subject area. They must have highly developed research skills, and be able to guide and mentor graduate students in their research efforts.
