Advisor Matching

  • Due: September 10 of Year 1
  • Purpose: A critical component to the success of a graduate student in this program is being matched to the right faculty advisor.  In addition to common research interests, a good match also takes into account such factors as work-style, personality, and culture. 
  • Matching Process (for students not designated specific advisors upon admission):
    1. Faculty Interviews:
      • To facilitate an appropriate match between a student and a faculty advisor, students are required to interview 4 to 6 faculty members.  These interviews should include in-depth discussions with faculty as well as participation in lab group meetings, lab tours, etc.
    2. Submission of Preferences:
      • By September 10th of Year 1, each student must submit a list of faculty members ranked in order of preference to the Graduate Program Coordinator, using the Student Faculty Interview & Preference form.  Faculty members will also submit a list of student preferences.
    3. The Associate Chair for Graduate Studies, along with other program leaders, will assign matches as appropriate.
