Hmm. 助ける can be read すける although it's usually たすける. I guess we could take that approach rather than ditching 助手/すけて altogther.

shinmeikai has たすけて【助(け)手】 and we have a corresponding entry 1344450. Maybe すけて could go there.

The kokugos all have an entry for 助手/すけて with the first sense the same as here. Most have a second archaic sense about an assistant at the 節会相撲. I'm comfortable with this entry the way it is, but maybe we could consider splitting 助手/すけて off.

Can we drop the ok reading? I don't like that it introduces a restr tag.

GG5:  2 〔大学の〕 an assistant 《to Prof. A》; a reader; a coadjutor; a tutor.
In BrE a "reader" is not an assistant - it's a senior position. I've never heard of coadjutor in a university context.
