I would like to know if I can be a research assistant, part time, after college.
I'm thinking about getting into academia, but I want to work first and make some money.
I'm in STEM, but want some hands on experience in sociology/anthropology. This is before going to grad school in either sociology or anthropology (I have my reasons for doing STEM first)
- a professor accept me as a part time RA? I'll be working a industry job part time too, but the pay hit wouldn't worry me so much.
- how would I approach a Sociology/Anthro professor for research post-grad as a part time RA? I do have some core Sociology/Anthro courses I have done, so I am not going in blind.
- How can I request I get paid?
Thanks for the advice
