Webwatch: Online documents available on funding of research assistants
Two documents with information
related to financial support for Graduate Student Research
Assistants are now available in the Research Policy Handbook online
at http://www.stanford.edu/dept/DoR/RPH.html. "Estimated Tuition Charges for Sponsored Projects"
is a spreadsheet that displays direct tuition charges to sponsored
projects for a research assistant. It has been updated to reflect
1998 tuition levels. The "1998-99 Minimum Salary Rates for Graduate
Student Research Assistants, Teaching Assistants and Postdoctoral
Research Affiliates" is a memo from Tom Wasow, associate dean of
graduate policy, that resets minimum salaries for these employees.
Links to these documents can be found in the handbook in Chapter 3,
"Financial Aspects of Sponsored Projects," and in Chapter 9,
"Non-Faculty Research Appointments." Furthermore, a clarification
has been made to Stanford's royalty-sharing policy in "Inventions,
Patents and Licensing." This concerns situations involving multiple
inventors from more than one Stanford department. It does not
change the underlying policy on patents or royalty sharing. For
further information, contact Ann George, assistant dean of
research, at 723-9721 or write to anngeo@leland.
