Top Research Assistant related questions

A good research assistant needs to be a good communicator, as shown by how they discuss assigned readings, ask questions, share their ideas, and conduct interviews. They should have good attention to detail, critical thinking skills, as well as technical skills. Ideally, the Tasker should also be able to do any planning and budgeting tasks well. Lastly, they should be proficient at synthesising, analysing, and safeguarding the collected data. 

The answer depends on the institute or academic who hired you. Still, a typical research assistant must have completed a relevant degree from an accredited institution (preferably a college or university). Some employers may also require experience, while others are happy to provide you with on-the-job training. Are you preparing for a research assistant interview? Power up with a coffee break! You can find nearby coffee delivery services through our platform.

In some cases, yes. Some institutions may allow their research assistants to work virtually. If you work in business and marketing and need to research your target market or competitors, an online research assistant can take on the bulk of your data-related workload. The academic field can also benefit from hiring virtual research assistants since they can collect data and conduct a review of related literature using online sources. 

You can find research assistants near you through our platform. To start, tap the “Post a task” button and fill out the task form with your location, field of research, and any other details you think the potential Tasker should know. Then, tap “Get quotes” and wait for the offers to flood your screen. After that, it’s just a matter of comparing offers and reading customer reviews until you find the research assistant who fits your needs. 

First, hire a research assistant who is competent at data collection, organisation, synthesis, and technical writing. Next, you’ll want to establish a mentor-like relationship with your research assistant. There’s a high chance that the Tasker you hired is working towards their degree in your field, so take the time to help develop their potential as you work towards your shared goal (your research project). Lastly, use project management tools to manage workflows and tasks with the Tasker. 

Usually, yes, since academic research is a form of technical writing. This means that the Tasker you hire to help you with your research will typically already be skilled in technical writing. But if you want to hire a dedicated technical writer for your research project (or other projects), you can find highly-rated technical writers through our platform.

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.
