Our consulting service is staffed by a team of advanced graduate students who provide consultation by appointment. The team also offers short courses in specific methods and data program packages. ISSR's Director of Research Methods Programs, Jessica Pearlman, is available for consulting appointments with faculty and graduate students, as well as to assist with the methods sections of grant proposals.
During the summer, consultations are available by appointment only.
