Research IT Software Engineer for Hire and Consultation Services

About the Service:

Faculty often have research accounts or grant funds, but may be unwilling or unable to hire full-time staff to support their research software development needs. Such faculty would benefit from some type of “liquid workforce” service that provides them with on-demand access to shared technology expertise. These resources, managed by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, aim to help faculty develop research IT solutions, especially with data-intensive workflows, while also enabling shared technology experts to add value to multiple research programs throughout the university.

What We Offer:

These services are dedicated to connecting researchers with consultative and programming solutions, customized to their project needs. This consultative service works directly with researchers to develop a project plan and best practices model for a variety of needs (high-performance computational analysis, programming, storage solutions).  Programming needs include: coding for data analyses, simulations and computation in various programming languages (Python, R, Matlab, C, apps for mobile devices, etc.), software development, GIS analysis, and other custom programming solutions.

Cost:

Programming costs are dependent on level of complexity and time to completion. General software engineering tasks start at $60/hour.  Dependent on length of project time and skills needed, we can offer various solutions to fit your need.  Please contact us here to set up a consultation.
