Be a StatLab Fellow!

The UVA Library’s Research Data Services is seeking StatLab Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year. Responding to growing interest in applied data science experience along with a developing movement to use data and data science for the public interest, the program provides up to four UVA graduate students experience working collaboratively, openly, and reproducibly on data science projects -- for example, working with local agencies to understand their data and improve processes, or working with news data to help citizens better navigate a complex media environment.

The goal is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to enhance their data skills and to gain experience working on a team project while promoting social good. (Plus, it pays $20/hour for up to 10 hours a week!).

See our webpage  for more details and application instructions.

OSF-UVA landing page

UVA has partnered with the Center for Open Science to create a central hub for affiliated research projects in the Open Science Framework on a branded, dedicated UVA OSF page. A collaboration between the VPR's office, the Data Science Institute, the University Library, and the Health Sciences Library, the OSF-UVA page provides an integrated framework that accommodates custom research workflows and streamlines data management. Have a look, affiliate your current OSF projects, or contact to learn more.

Research Software Support: Dedoose and Excel

We've expanded our research software support to include Dedoose and Microsoft Excel. Dedoose is a cross-platform app for analyzing qualitative and mixed methods research with text, photos, audio, videos, spreadsheet data and more.

Microsoft Excel is the world's most popular spreadsheet application, and is found on nearly everyone's computer. Unlock the research power of Excel and Dedoose by attending our offerings as part of our Workshop Series, or email us to schedule a one-on-one or group session with our support team.
