Laid-back, individual research work, mostly from home
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Greenville, NC – July 5, 2017
As a graduate research assistant, I helped an Assistant Professor with various tasks and responsibilities. They included, literature reviews, data input and management, qualitative survey administration, transcribing, coding, budgeting, grant writing, etc. Most of the work was done from home but there is a graduate student office you can work in if you choose to. Overall, the pay was good to supplement a part-time job while continuing education. I would recommend assitantships to all students- undergraduate or graduate- to help with income while still having time for class work.
Work from home, little supervision, independent work
Not very scheduled, responsibilities vary, no benefits
