Research Assistant Position Interview – What should I look out for? What should I ask about?

Recommended Posts

Alright so I’m an incoming masters student with interviews for two research assistant positions both dealing with urban planning.

Problem is I’m not sure what to look out for with research positions and what questions to ask during my interviews. It seems I would be fairly qualified for both but what do masters students typically look for/get out of doing an RAship?

Should RAs expect credit on a paper/publication? Or is it invisible behind the scenes work? Should I ask about this?

Do I go for the research on a topic I am more interested in or the one with a potential supervisor in my program?

I really don’t know what I’m looking out for so any help would go a long way!! Thanks :)
