    Are you working in a research team? Do you regularly meet online? Funded by the Sloan Research Foundation, Dr. Anita Blanchard is conducting a study on how distributed research teams develop and maintain their connections during and between their virtual meetings. We are currently seeking a wide variety of research teams in STEM, social sciences, and humanities to create a recruitment pool for this project. Research teams can have a variety of purposes including but not limited to basic research, applied research & development, grant writing, policy creation, data collection & analysis, and manuscript preparation. We prefer teams ranging from 3 and 10 people who have regular virtual meetings.  Participation will include surveys and meeting observations. One member of the research team will serve as our lead contact to help with coordination. If chosen to participate in the study, the team contact will receive compensation of up to $250 and each team member will receive up to $150.  


    Interested? Fill out this Google form. Filling out the form is not a commitment to participate, it is just letting us know that you are interested in participating and adding you to our recruitment pool. If you are interested in learning more, contact Dr. Anita Blanchard at


    The request to create a recruitment pool was approved by IRB-23-1055.
