Building Teams with Graduate Student Research Facilitators

Thur, July 8, 1p ET/ 12p CT/ 11a MT/ 10a PT/ 8a HT

There are many approaches to building teams to work directly with researchers in order to facilitate their data and computing needs. One approach is to hire graduate student consultants who are situated as researchers themselves in specific domains. Please join us for a presentation from Northwestern University and the University of California Berkeley, two universities who take this approach. First we will hear from an organizational perspective and then directly from grad students who are on these teams about the types of projects students work on, defining the work and setting expectations with faculty, recruitment and hiring, and securing funding.  


  • Heather Amato, University of California Berkeley
