Sherrinford Posted March 4, 2017 Share Posted March 4, 2017 Hello everyone! This is my first post so excuse me if it is in the wrong place. I'm currently a Masters student (NYC). After not succeeding this application cycle, I want to find paid part-time research work and am not entirely sure how to go about looking. I had a few questions specifically: 1. I know what clinical population I would specifically like to do research with. However, in my searches via job/internship sites, I haven't been finding paid research positions with those specific populations. I'm worried about getting a job doing research with a different population/research focus, would that count against me when I apply to doctoral programs again? I am also volunteering part-time at a research lab working with a population that I do like. 2. There are many great schools and clinics in my city...but I know that the labs generally just have volunteer RAs with only the coordinators getting paid. Would it be unusual to email some of these labs asking them if there were opportunities for paid research work? Appreciate any form of guidance or tips! Thank you. ~Sherrinford Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
