Here is the link to the SEARCH feature on the VinUni research website that can help you to find faculty members who do research in your area of interest.
Yes, you can get paid as a research assistant for some projects. Contact the faculty member to inquire whether funding is available for the project that you are interested in. If you search for an opportunity on Career Connect, you will see the compensation information in the posting itself.
Discuss with your faculty advisor, your instructor about the time and commitment required for your course work and research before signing up for additional research workload. There is no magic bullet for managing time and workload, and we highly recommend that you communicate with your research mentor and advisor if you have concerns about workload.
The VPRO will organize some training workshops either online or in person and will open them for all students. In addition, the best training in research will come from working on the research itself and from your research mentor, we recommend that you take every opportunity to learn from your research mentor.
