Research Partners

Research Partner Account

A faculty/staff member may initiate a request for an eRaider account to be assigned for a non-TTU research partner. Once this eRaider account is in place, the research partner can then apply to have this eRaider account enabled for access to HPCC facilities as below.

Note: The research partner account must be in place from the university before requesting access to the HPCC!

The steps are as follows:

  1. TTU faculty/staff member requests eRaider account from the university for a research partner. (Note the HPCC is not involved in this process and cannot initiate it. See the application steps below.)

    • Gather the following information from the research partner:
      Name,Email, Company (or university), Country, Full address, Phone, Status: (US citizen, US Immigrant, Canadian citizen, other), Justification (collaboration with your research group, expected duration, etc.)

    • Submit the request online by going to www.net.ttu.edu 
      The option to request a Research Partner account can be found on the left menu under Network Accounts. A direct link to this form is http://www.net.ttu.edu/netforms/researchpartner.aspx
  2. Once the research partner eRaider account has been received from the university, the research partner who now has this account may apply for HPCC access using it, specifying the faculty sponsor, just as for a regular TTU user using the HPCC Student and External Account Request page.

Please feel free to contact hpccsupport@ttu.edu if you have questions, but please be aware that the HPCC can only enable a research partner eRaider account for access after it has been created by the above process.
