I've been trying to find RA positions with a researcher who focuses on couples/marital counseling. All my searches have been for naught when approached from the angle of job/internship searches. Does anyone have any suggestions on places to go to look, or do I need to just approach every researcher I can find in who focuses on my interests? I have to admit to a certain trepidation in just sending unsolicited e-mails to researchers and inquiring if they need an RA. Is there something else I should be doing to find a position? Is approaching unsuspecting researchers unusual? Also, while Im not averse to being an unpaid RA if I must, a paid position would certainly make it easier for me to get any sleep over the next year or so, particularly since Im going to be taking classes as well. I suppose its terribly lazy of me to hope that I wont have to take classes, volunteer as an RA, and work full-time, but I hope nonetheless. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Danke.
