Description of Statistics Lab Fees
There are two options for obtaining statistics support:
- % FTE (% of a Full-Time Employee) for ongoing, long-term grants or departmental support requiring a variety of services.
- % of the salary and benefits of the assigned statistician.
- Hourly Rates for short-term projects requiring specific services within a limited time frame.
- $125 per hour for University departments and affiliates.
- Negotiated rates for non-affiliated organizations, depending on scope of work, plus travel costs, if incurred.
- Why would I use the Stat Lab instead of hiring my own statistician?
- Rather than relying on a single person’s education and background, you would have access to a range of levels (MS / junior toPhD? / senior level statisticians), as well as taking advantage of the wide array of expertise within the Stat Lab collaborative pool of colleagues.
- Stat Lab statisticians are mentored by senior faculty, providing a depth of shared experience that cannot be found in a single individual.
- You avoid the management responsibility and facilities expense associated with a “regular” employee, while having the flexibility to obtain part-time or short-term support as needed.
- You can control the specific costs associated with a project or grant.
- You can secure intellectual collaboration on short notice, without undergoing a time-consuming hiring process.
- The Stat Lab works with you to help structure your research and analyses. As a collaborative partner, the Stat Lab can assist you in preparing grant proposals, designing studies, analyzing their results – all the way through to helping you write manuscripts, reports to funding agencies, and presentations of findings.
- What do the hourly rates include?
- Support for staff salaries and benefits.
- Support for the Stat Lab infrastructure.
- Built-in “capacity” to respond to and collaborate on new projects as they arise.
- Do I have to pay the Stat Lab if I just have a quick question?
- No. We are happy to share our expertise with the University community by addressing quick biostatistical questions or providing short consultations at no charge.
- If the question isn’t really “quick” and requires in-depth analysis or treatment, the we will work with you to structure a longer term collaboration.
- How do I incorporate Stat Lab statisticians into my research team?
- Contact Juli Riemenschneider Program Coordinator: phone (520) 626-2770 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- We will set up an initial meeting to discuss your project.
- Note: There are no charges for the initial meeting(s).
