RA Survival Guide: Home


Welcome! Your job as a research assistant should be treated as a serious commitment - your Professor is counting on you to produce timely, well-summarized and thoroughly researched information to help advance his/her scholarship.  Take your job as seriously as you would any other type of employment, and use the Table of Contents to the left for tips to ensure a successful tenure as an RA.

Above all else, all assignments should be submitted in a timely manner.   Should you anticipate any delay in submitting the assignment to your Professor, contact him/her AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to inform him/her of this delay and if possible provide a revised anticipated completion time.
