How to hire a Research Assistant?
A research assistant, or RA, is a researcher employed, often on a temporary contract, by a university, a research institute or a private held organization, for the purpose of assisting in academic or private research. Research assistants are not independent and are responsible to a supervisor or principal investigator and usually are not directly responsible for the outcome of the research. However, in Malaysia, research assistants can be the main contributor to the outcome of the research. Research assistants are often educated to degree level and might be enrolled in a postgraduate degree program and simultaneously teach.
