Does your Project Need More Support?
Get embedded support from one or more MATCHPremier Consultants for 12 - 18 months. Engagements are requested at least six months in advance.
Researchers are matched with consultants who have the expertise to help with massive allocations or using ACCESS resources in novel ways. We may be able to provide proposal development support for researchers that need significant or unusual allocations, including detailed input that will help create a well designed plan that maximizes scientific output.
MATCHPremier Consultants are selected from the Computational Science and Support Network (CSSN) depending on the researcher's needs - they may be facilitators, research software engineers, or other types of appropriate support personnel.
The MATCHPremier Process
Researchers define the research need, required skill sets, deliverables and a set of milestones via the engagement request form.
Funding for the MATCHPremier consultants will be arranged directly between the researcher's institution and the consultant. We anticipate that personnel participating in the MATCHPremier program will be deployed at institutions across the country, and partially funded for other work at their home institutions.
Expert Consultants, Supported by MATCH
While they are funded by the researcher, the MATCH program works with MATCHPremier project teams to ensure that consultants have a strong support system. Consultants are invited to join monthly meetings with other MATCHPremier consultants and bi-annual reviews are conducted with the project team to review progress, set milestones, and address issues or concerns that arise.
MATCHPremier engagements provide researchers with consultants to support their research, enabling researchers to spend more time on their science, and less on finding the ideal partner. With the wide pool of talented minds available through the Computational Science and Support Network (CSSN), researchers can be matched with expert help depending on their unique needs.
Funding your MATCHPremier Engagement
Interested in Joining the Pilot?
MATCHPremier will be selecting up to ten projects to launch between September, 2022 and May, 2023. Requests will be evaluated in the order received until January 31, 2023. Subsequent requests will continue to be accepted, but there may be a short delay in processing as we incorporate feedback from the pilot.
