Research associates can be found at a wide variety of employers, including financial institutions, universities, biotech companies, and insurance firms. While the domain of knowledge will vary greatly across industries, a research associate will typically be responsible for the research and collection of information, analysis of that information given a project's expressed goals and presentation of findings/results to help inform decisions on a project or within an organization. Successful research associates typically have a keen attention to detail, are analytical and can easily recommend actions based upon the gathered data/facts.See Job ListingsGet Job Alerts
