I want to be a Research Assistant, but haven’t found a position yet - is this training for me?

We currently do not offer a formal training program for aspiring RAs. Students who wish to develop new research skills to improve their chances of finding employment as an RA may sign up for available Library workshops, but we do not offer certificates of completion.

You are still welcome to meet with your Subject Librarian if you would like assistance in better understanding a particular aspect of the research process (e.g. using a particular database or managing citations), but this one on one support is most useful when it is tailored to a particular research question or project.

For advice on finding a research assistant position, please check out the resources in our Undergraduate Research guide.
