Breaking into a research lab is all about networking; research assistant positions in labs are generally not found on websites. Therefore, to find a research assistant position, you must network. More importantly however, breaking into a research lab is about knowing how to network strategically. To help you get started, search DePaul's Faculty Bio Page to find faculty who share your research interests. Even if you have never taken a class with a professor you are interested in working with, you can still reach out to them. Read some of their recent publication's abstracts to determine what it is they actually research and if there is a match with your research interests.
