IBACS Administrative Assistance Form
Please use this form if you are interested in requesting time from IBACS coordinator, Melanie Stroud. The goal of this position is to not only help PI's obtain administrative funding on grants by already having a person identified but to also offer assistance to those who are only awarded enough funds to pay "percentages" of admin support, e.g., 30%, as these part-time positions can be difficult to fill. Another goal is to retain institutional knowledge by offering continual employment to one person rather than the current cycle of re-hiring every time a new grant is awarded. Short-term projects (e.g. conference support) can also be applied for, but note that the grant sponsor must allow admin costs and it must be included in the grant proposal no matter the request. Thank you!
