They are assigned a number of teaching units, depending on the subject that they will be teaching. Lecturers usually work for part-time and are required only a certain number of teaching units. Both lecturers and professors are required to pass some tests; most especially their actual teaching test but it would always depend on the university that they are applying for. It is also a must that they prepare lesson plans before they do their lectures so that they would be updated on what topic they have already discussed to their students. There are some universities that require their lecturers to have a master’s degree and their professors to have a doctor’s degree. There are also some universities that require professors to conduct research and experiments and contribute their paper works to scientific publications.

Research assistants also assist students in the university who are doing their thesis or research work. There are some experiments that always need to be attended and data should also be obtained on a certain period of time this is why universities also hire research assistants to do this kind of work. Aside from manning the experiment and obtaining crucial data, they are also responsible for doing preliminary research and paperwork. They can also be assigned in field work to obtain data relevant to the research or experiment.
