If the needs of your project or group exceed what can reasonably be provided by our basic level of service, you may benefit from the Consultant Partnership Program. The RCC provides access not only to computing resources but also to computational scientist consulting services; in the same way that principal investigators can purchase hardware through the Cluster Partnership Program, a research group may purchase a portion of an FTE computational scientist through this program. The program is targeted at research institutes and departments that may want to provide a computational scientist in their domain of expertise or principal investigators who may want to leverage a member of the RCC staff for extended periods of time.

All partnerships are handled on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us with questions and proposals.
