Mode of Service
this time, SCC does not provide "walk-in" services but can
typically arrange an initial meeting in five to ten business days
during the regular semester. To initiate the process please email email@example.com
with your name, phone number, affiliation, and a description of your
project. Please note that due to limited resources, we do not
provide direct service to students requiring statistical assistance in
their research. Graduate students whose research requires statistical
support are advised to contact SCC via their faculty advisor who
has/can arrange financial resources to support work related to SCC.
Researcher Requiring Support for a Federal Grant
provides specialized support for medical doctors and other
clinical/basic scientists requiring statistical data analysis for
federal/private grants. It is recommended that investigators initiate
the Statistics/Biostatistics contact as early as possible. This should
be done well before the grant/protocol deadline to take full advantage
of the available expertise in designing the study. While we advertise
the hourly rate of our service upfront, SCC is flexible towards the
requirement of new but aspirant researchers without any federal grant.
Being a unit of an extensive research department, our broader goal is
not just limited to providing consulting support but rather to foster
long term research collaboration.
Authorship in Publications
Department of Mathematical Sciences is not primarily a "service
only" department and scientific research is always given the top
most priority. The mechanism used to provide support does not alter
the collaborative atmosphere. The contribution of each person needs to
be evaluated as a manuscript is prepared. Consideration for authorship
should be based on the accepted criteria for most scientific journals.
While it is impossible to define give an definition of such authorship
in general, it should be clear that reimbursement for time does not
preclude or replace authorship.
for Statistical Support
present, there exist two modes of monetary agreement for receiving
statistical support from SCC:
Direct support for named individuals with NIH/NSF and other
Statistical service support on an hourly basis
direct support amount varies as it depends upon specific faculty
salary and is the preferred mode of activity for most faculty
researchers. The hourly rates are provided below. Please note that
our graduate student supports always work under faculty supervision.
