Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 January 2018
The experience as a graduate student highly varies depending on several factors such as (but nos exclusive):
2) Nature of project
3) Personal situation
The supervisor and the nature of the project can possibly hinder the experience, or boost it. The supervisor-student relationship varies completely depending on the professor, and cannot be described firmly. The nature of the project influences not only on the complexity of the work, but on the funding availability, facilities available, and other material needs. The personal situation is as the name describes, a personal factor.
Can be flexible, good atmosphere among peers
Can be tedious, low income, low accountability held against supervisors
