Research Associate

Research associate is an academic research position at a university or similar institution. A research associate usually conducts research under the supervision of a principal investigator, although there is a lot of variability in the degree of independence. In contrast to a research assistant, a research associate often has a graduate degree, such as a master's (e.g. Master of Science) or doctoral degree (e.g. Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Medicine, or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine). In some cases it can be synonymous with postdoctoral research.

Famous quotes containing the words associate and/or research:

    If you associate enough with older people who do enjoy their lives, who are not stored away in any golden ghettos, you will gain a sense of continuity and of the possibility for a full life.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    Feeling that you have to be the perfect parent places a tremendous and completely unnecessary burden on you. If we’ve learned anything from the past half-century’s research on child development, it’s that children are remarkably resilient. You can make lots of mistakes and still wind up with great kids.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
