You mean THE field of research totally in general? None at all.
If you mean a specific field of research at a specific institution and as part as their research team, it seems PhD and Masters are usual, while those training for either are welcome as junior members of some research (you can’t get a PhD without doing some kind of research first).
But, first of all, the degree requirement varies from institution to institution doing research in teams or with subsidies, and, second, doing your personal inquiry on time not given to some wage earning job which would require other activities conflicting with it, that requires no degree at all, unless you require it of yourself.
