Most research assistant posts are for post-doc only (as they will work alonside the professor and have vast amount of knowledge in that area of research). The jobs you need to look for are research techicians , but you would need at least 1 year experience in that field , but it is a well-paid job.
Anyway, Good luck, hope this have helped you in finding the right path
That happened to me as well, what I did was copy the project details and put it in my own words with abit of extras showing your knowledge in the subject and that should be fine (It wouldnt take more than 20 minutes rather than you keep on thinking about it)!
So, what is the main benefit of your second offer compare to the one you already got.
1)If it is only down to a few more hundred pounds to the studentship , I wouldnt bother with it and just accept the first offer.
Try to delay the first offer as long as possible til you heard from your 2nd offer , that's what I did (but with two different universities)
This funding is very pretigious and only offer to graduate who are most promising. Shani was spot on with the scheme /allocation of funding. Your supervisor/department only chooses the student with very good chance in gaining the studentship to complete . And Yes there are 100 studentship per year but it can also offered to the students who are currently studying a Phd . To apply, you would need at least a 2.1 undergrauate degree and 70% in the key subjects from your previous degree (e.g Biochemistry modules ) from a recognise university .
You would also need some experience in research, but it would be provided if you were chosen . To be honest , there are much greater chance in obtaining a studentship from Wellcome trust (but they are mostly 4 year course ). I would contact your supervisor on the day of the interview !
