"I've worked at University of Minnesota as a TA. Overall this is an amazing university and the working environment is good."

Graduate Student Research Assistant
in Minneapolis, MN

"I worked for the professor in University of Minnesota as a graduate student research assistant for 5 years. The overall academic environment is nice, easy assess to biomedical library, pubmed and research equipment. We like to collaborate with both lab members in the same lab and also explore the resource in the other lab."

"Working as a research assistant is a tough and under compensated job. It is an exercise in delaying gratification. However, the work environment is hard to beat, the co workers are fun, and it is, by design, a temporary position. I would recommend the U of M to any graduate student for its excellent campus and resources available."

"Working in a research laboratory is interesting, fun and stimulating. And working for the University of Minnesota is a really fantastic experience with great health benefits, discounts on classes, and access to world-class gyms and recreational centers. But, expect to be paid much lower than any equivalent position in a non-academic setting."
