The Statistical Consulting Center, a unit of the Department of Statistics, exists to coordinate the statistical knowledge and skills available within the department with the subject-matter expertise of other scientists throughout the university, and to bring that combination to bear on applied research problems in diverse areas. The center can provide assistance in research design, sampling, data collection, and/or data analysis for the full range of research needs. The initial consultation is free. Thereafter, a variety of mechanisms are available to acknowledge the contributions of statistical consulting to a given research project, including co-authorship on a scholarly publication, membership on a thesis or dissertation committee, direct compensation to the consultant at private consulting rates, subcontracting with the center on a grant project, etc. On occasion, the center can also offer paid employment and internships to graduate students who have appropriate training and skills to assist other researchers. For further information about any of the services available through the Statistical Consulting Center, please contact the center via the contact information above.
