my research advisor said that if youre interested in research positions that there really isnt a timeline in the sense that you could secure a position even in the summer prior to starting in august. this is because funding gets approved throughout the academic year with different grant deadlines so new positions open up in waves

I think it would really depend on what kind of job you're looking for. Research would have to be earlier since you'd have to find a PI, make sure they have the funding, and apply for study grants or funding somehow. If you're looking for a job like a scribe or a PCA, you would probably have to wait till you're about 3 months out from when you want to start since they would want to hire people who can start pretty much immediately.

I'm thinking clinical research!
