I would like to include statistical collaborators in a grant. What should I know?

Clients who engage in sponsored research are encouraged to include statistical consulting in research proposals or pay for services from existing grants. This can take the form of a direct-cost line item, a full or partial graduate research assistantship, or partial funding of a faculty member's salary.

We prefer being paid a flat fee for our work rather than charge on an hourly basis. Our hourly rates depend upon the type of work requested and who the statistical collaborator is. We typically propose between $75 and $90 per hour for graduate student statisticians and between $200 and $350 per hour for faculty members. Interested parties should email or call the director to discuss arrangements.
