When you’re a researcher, you basically get paid for being curious, which is kind of amazing. Plus, having the patience and skills to interpret complex data is not something that everybody is born with.
Research jobs aren’t all in science either. Sure, you can research things related to science but there’s also market research, which measures less objective things, like public opinion. On this list of currently-available jobs, you’ll find a fun mix. Data and numbers are present but there’s also a few off the cuff positions, and even one that puts your culinary skills to the test.
Check out these research roles to cure your curiosity cravings.
