Do you have undergraduate research opportunities?
All faculty are encouraged to think of any activity (scientific or scholarly) that leads to things like increased problem-solving skills, design or analysis of a project, production of new knowledge, or any contribution to a current research project (i.e. transcribing interviews, entering data, etc.). Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have upcoming Fall 2011 or Spring 2012 undergraduate research opportunities.Back to Top

New Bio-Statistical Support Information
The Applied Statistics Lab (ASL) is now available to enhance statistical support for both faculty and students. The ASL will provide researchers with a centralized location to seek advice for planning studies and implementing analysis. One of the advantages of centralized support is that requests requiring less statistical sophistication may be handled by a junior RA and more complicated requests may be triaged to a faculty member with specific expertise.
It is likely that Catherine Starnes (now a senior RA) will continue to work on projects for CHS as she did last year. Heather Bush, Ph.D., will continue her supervision of CHS projects and will ensure that the statistical needs of the college are met.
Effective immediately, please send all bio-statistical requests directly to Candace Brancato.Back to Top

Training: Electronic Approval Form (e-IAF) Continues
Training for the e-IAF process for the fall semester will be held:
• Day: Every Tuesday
• Time: 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
• Dates: August 16 - December 6
• Location: Room 72 McVey Hall
There is no need to register for the class, which will go over a web based version of the electronic Internal Approval Form (e-IAF) that allows routing via workflow and electronic signatures. The e-IAF form is now available university wide. For questions or assistance with the e-IAF process, faculty and staff should notify their College Grants Officer (CGO) to assist them. If there is not a CGO, the Research Administrator (RA) should be contacted to assist. More information about the e-IAF can be found on the OSPA forms page. The hope is that the e-IAF process will reduce the administrative burden on researchers and staff.Back to Top
