    assist (in) a research
    Should I put in there? or both are correct?

    I'm afraid you can't use an indefinite article with the word "research", which is uncountable. Maybe you should say "a research work".
    Of course you can say "... is assisting me with my research" or "... is assisting me with my research work".

    Best.
