Virtual Residency Program

The Virtual Residency Program trains pre-service and in-service Research Computing and Data Facilitators, focusing primarily on professional/interpersonal skills and only secondarily on technical skills. Founded in 2015, the VRP hosts an annual weeklong summer workshop as well as several apprenticeships, on Grant Proposal Writing, Paper Writing,and Grant Running, because many RC Facilitators come from non-research-intensive background, including former enterprise IT professionals and RC professionals who haven’t engaged in the full spectrum of research tasks.
