is this sentence crrect: Thus, I was motivated to set my research career goal "of helping" peope increase their income wuth new job development. the correct proposition should bewhich of the followings,
The answers are certainly on the right track, but the words used before the word helping are not prepositions. They are adverbs in any dialect of English. Also, a proposition is quite different from a preposition, and the intended word spelled peope I think is people.

I have to disagree with Jack.
"Of" is solely defined as a preposition (Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary and Oxford English Dictionary).
"As" is an adverb, but may also be used as a conjunction or preposition.
"In" is a preposition, but may also be used as an adverb, adjective, or noun.
"For" is a preposition, but may also be used as a conjunction
