We offer contract consulting to faculty and staff with more complex data analysis needs (for more information see Professional Data Analysis Services). Contract services are provided for an hourly fee and may include data cleaning and manipulation, power analyses, tailored data analyses, or detailed reporting of results.
E-mail assistance may be requested through firstname.lastname@example.org. Most email queries will be responded to within one business day (emails sent on Friday or over the weekend will typically be answered on Monday). While it is feasible to answer fairly straightforward questions via e-mail, questions requiring longer answers are better suited to in-person consultations. If you send multiple emails within a week, it may be several days before we can respond.
Note. We also provide assistance with the preparation of research proposals seeking funds from external sponsors. Please click here to learn more about how to request this support.
