    I am writing my resume, but it seems that I haved used too much "Collaborate" in it.
    Any other words can substitute it? "Collaborated with a team to conduct research on ..."

    "Worked within a team to conduct research on ..."?

    "Worked within a team to conduct research on ..." sounds fine to me.

    Or, perhaps a little more natural,
    "Worked with a team to conduct research on ...". or "Worked with a team in conducting research on ..." Or "Worked as part of a team conducting research on ..." I think I like this last version best.

    I'm sure there are several other ways to say the same thing.

    How about "cooperate with a team"

    Yes, that'll work too.

    You've mentioned several different phrases, and they don't all have the same meaning. "Cooperated with a team" or "collaborated with a team" suggests that you in some way aided the team or that you worked independently of the team; you were not a member of the team. "Worked as part of a team" or "worked on a team" says that you were a member of the team. What was your role in the research?
