Job Description for Research Technician

Research technicians assist scientists with their experiments and research. They primarily work in a lab environment, but may work in an office while analyzing basic data. The duties of a research technician working in the field of chemistry are different from a research technician working in the field of biological research. However, research technicians will usually be required to record test results, monitor experiments, use, clean and maintain equipment, care for lab animals, maintain supplies and prepare equipment for testing. Research technicians generally work as part of a team. Depending on the size of a project, they may report to the laboratory supervisors or the principal investigators (the lead scientists on projects). A great deal of a research technician's work will require on-the-job training. As such, they are usually assigned to a mentor who will train them and provide feedback.
