A research fellow holds a time-limited research position at a university, clinic, or similar environment.

Some tasks that research fellows may perform include designing laboratory experiments, applying standard scientific protocols to experiments and research, helping improve current investigatory methods, and evaluating emerging techniques in the field as required. Research fellows draft and edit scientific reports and articles, as well as design and perform experiments and record data according to the needs of the project. They may also need to independently reproduce, research, and improve techniques currently used and convert to new techniques as required.
