Research Associates

You are here

The title of Research Associate is used to denote an individual’s formal scholarly affiliation with the Institution. However, Research Associates are not employees of the Smithsonian. A STRI Research Associate is someone who has demonstrated the qualities of superior achievement expected of an established and independent research scientist.

These qualities of superior achievement include, among others:

  • The capacity to identify significant and relevant research questions that are compatible with STRI' s Mission.
  • The ability to formulate and carry out the research to answer these questions.
  • The ability to exercise superior judgment and discrimination in the interpretation of research results.
  • The motivation to present the results of this research for the judgment of others through lectures, publications and papers.
  • The recognition of excellence in research through commonly used mechanisms such as citations and peer reviews.

Research Associates are expected to pursue independent research, although collaboration with other scientists is highly desirable. They are expected to take an active interest in the welfare of the Institution by participating in the preparation of research proposals, education programs, communication activities, committees and task forces, and by providing assistance and advice to their colleagues.
