Thesis Advisers

Arguably, the most important adviser an MSTP student will have is the thesis adviser, with whom students meet frequently during the research phase of training. The thesis adviser has a deep impact on a student’s future, since productivity during the research phase is a major determinant of long-term commitment to and success in research. Get tips on how to find a these adviser.

Additionally, each student has a thesis committee of four or more faculty members who advise the student during the research phase of training and ensure milestones are met. The annual report of the thesis committee is included in the Annual MSTP Student Progress Report.
