Former Graduate Research Assistant at University of Cincinnati
almost 2 years ago
As a Graduate Research Assistant(RA) you are supposed to work on a project; and that project can be either an external funded project or your own thesis work. If its an external project, a weekly or fortnightly report need to be relayed to the client about the progress achieved. Hence, this requires daily working and giving your best. In case of it being your thesis work, then you are the master in the sense you can pace it as per your convenience. Besides that a lot also depends upon your advisor. Therefore, one should find the best advisor in college and not settle for a mediocre one.
