MPC members can apply to use the services of a 20-hour per week graduate research assistant for a short period of time (typically up to 4 weeks). Priority is given to projects that (a) have a population studies focus, broadly construed; (b) can quickly result in a publication and/or grant proposal; (c) can clearly benefit from short-term research assistance; and (d) do not already have external funding. Preference will be given to junior faculty.
To apply for this service, please send an email to email@example.com and include the following information:
Your name and departmental affiliation
Details about your project: A title and a short (~2 paragraph) description of the overall project's goals and activities
Information about the product that will result (e.g., a publication, a grant proposal, a conference presentation) and when that product will be produced
A statement about current external funding support for the project
A description of the specific activities the research assistant would do and (if not obvious) how they fit into the overall project
The number of weeks the research assistant's services would be needed (at 10-20 hours per week) and a proposed starting date
