What do a research assistant’s services include?

If your department or laboratory needs extra manpower, stat, Airtasker can help you find competent research assistants in minutes. These Taskers can handle everything from conducting experiments to organising your data and even helping you manage your laboratory equipment. 

You can even ask your research assistant to attend relevant meetings and monitor your project budget. Here’s what you can typically expect when you hire a research assistant through our platform.

Conducting research and collecting data

A Tasker can conduct research and collect data for you based on your research method. This can include conducting interviews, going out into the field, or performing experiments in the lab. Simply give them the methodologies or interview guides they need to follow, brief them on your research protocols, and wait for them to come back with the necessary information. 

In some cases, the research assistant can transcribe interview recordings or videos for you. But if you have more essential assignments for your Tasker, you can hire a transcriptionist to do this for you instead. 

Analysing and presenting data

Complex research projects can involve several charts and graphs and a seemingly endless amount of data. A Tasker can help you analyse this data and present them in organised, easy-to-understand charts, graphs, or slides. This leaves you with more time for the “macro” parts of your research, like synthesising the findings. 

Your Tasker’s skill at data analysis may vary, depending on their credentials. Some researchers find that these tasks are best left to graduate or PhD-level research assistants, while other tasks (like editing and project management) are better handled by undergraduate RA’s.

Reviewing related literature

Reviewing related literature can be incredibly time-consuming, but a research assistant can help you tackle all those books, journals, and online sources. They can summarise each material, brief you on its relevance to your study, and help you identify the gaps in the research that your study might be able to fill.  

Fact-checking, editing, and proofreading research

As your project nears its final stages, you can ask your research assistant to do multiple rounds of fact-checking, editing, and proofreading (with your guidance). This can apply to the actual paper you will submit, audio-visual presentations or slideshows for your thesis defence, and more.

Project management

A research assistant’s tasks aren’t limited to technical, lab or field-related duties. If your project involves many meetings, focus group discussions, laboratory equipment, and a tight budget, you can ask the Tasker to assist. Research assistants can usually manage and respond to relevant emails and maintain lab equipment. Additionally, they can do regular inventory checks and coordinate meeting schedules (or attend them on your behalf). Finally, they can also be assigned to do progress reports and budget reports to help you stay on track.

Once your current research project is done, why not celebrate with the rest of your staff? You can get a cake delivered in under an hour by booking a Tasker near you.
