Faculty members with an IT and/or computing need that is not covered by regularly available IT services can contact IT’s Research Computing Coordinator. The Research Computing Coordinator will work with faculty members to establish a solution to best address his or her concerns, and to assist with identifying possible sources of funding.
Research computing requests include, but are not limited to:
Assistance with grant proposals
Many grant proposals require the submitter to include an IT component. Whether the component contains an affirmation of practices, or includes new purchases, IT can offer guidance and advice.
In order to keep raw research data secure, encryption can be used to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data. IT is able to provide encryption software, and provides advice concerning configuration options and key management.
Specialized networking needs
If research programs include specialized networking needs that are currently infeasible to implement using our existing infrastructure, a consultation with the Research Computing Coordinator may be beneficial to you.
Specialized software needs
The Research Computing Coordinator can act as a go-between for purchasing software that is specifically used for research purposes. In some situation, software is available for immediate allocation, while in other situation software may need to be purchased. In all cases, a consultation with the Research Computing Coordinator can be helpful.
