Job Description for Research Analyst

Research analysts must carefully examine data and produce meaningful information for their employer. This can involve not only drawing meaning from the data, but also checking to make sure the data is correct and using it to validate ideas and theories. When not examining or verifying information, a research analyst must work with their superiors to demonstrate what they have learned from their data and how it can be applied in the future for their business.

Research analysts can be found in both the private and public sectors and are necessary for most financial businesses to operate successfully. Depending on the company and field, a research analyst can find themselves looking over data for any number of things. Research analysts rarely work alone; in most cases, multiple analysts are examining and verifying data.

Research analysts should have a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business, or a relevant field; they may also benefit in additional education in the sector in which they work. In addition to analyzing data, a research analyst reports their findings to their company regularly, so they should be well versed in creating and giving presentations.

Research Analyst Tasks
  • Use a variety of sources to research and analyze topics, becoming an expert in a field.
  • Collect and analyze quantitative data.
  • Present results in written and oral formats.
  • Interview clients or team members to identify information needs and deliverables.
