Request Support from a RA Floater
Support from a Research Administration floater is allocated on a first come, first served basis. Available time is limited and is dependent on existing projects, and a request does not guarantee the availability of support. Support can be requested on a short (1-2 months) medium (3-5 months), or long (6+ months) basis. Support can be requested at the following levels:
- Short term: A specific need, such as a large, multi-investigator project
- Medium term: A vacancy in the process of being filled, or coverage for a leave
- Long term: An increase in volume (number of proposals and/or expenditures) that cannot yet be addressed by the requesting school or center.
To discuss access to Research Administration floater time, interested departments should contact Sarah Marina at email@example.com.
