Become a Research Assistant

Research Assistants are students conducting laboratory research for wages. These wages are funded by the supervising professor, and therefore the assistantship is arranged between the student and the professor. Students typically earn between $11.50 and $15 per hour as research assistants. It is often the case that a student pursues mentored research for credit (MMBIO 294R or MMBIO 494R) in the research lab for a time prior to becoming a lab assistant in that same lab. For more information, see our page on Mentored Research.
