    Hi, all!  Does anyone know where I can find real research administrator temporary help?  Must I resort to combing listservs for retiring research administrators or is there somewhere else I can look?  -- alwf

    Hi Audrey, 

    I believe Huron (https://www.huronconsultinggroup.com/) can be engaged to place consultants in temporary assignments, but I don't know the fee range for this. Depending on the duration and urgency, may be worth it (if in budget) to save the headache and time sink of advertising/recruiting/vetting potential candidates on your own. 

    (I am not an employee of Huron, nor do I have any stake in their services.)

    Best, 

    Cira

    Not off topic at all, Audrey.

    In addition to the excellent partners named, sometimes you may be able to get recent retirees or others who are in between jobs to help. I have done that a few times to cover a family medical leave.  I was able to network via NCURA to find someone.  This may be more difficult today since there appears to a general shortage of qualified staff across the US right now.  There is a lot of job movement in the research administration job market due to new and reinvisioned remote work possibilities.

    Thanks so much!  Hopefully someone from the organizations mentioned here will get back to me soon.  I will reach out through NCURA too, and probably a couple of listservs.  Thanks again!  -- alwf

    Hi, all!  I really thank each of you for your responses.  I have yet to get an estimate/quote from the companies mentioned here.  I'm not sure what to think.  If you know of other companies or research administrators who are looking for temporary work, please send them my way.  Have them email me directly at audrey.foster@gallaudet.edu  I appreciate it.
