Thesis Committees will be composed of the Research Advisor and at least two other MIT faculty members. Your thesis committee chair must be from the MIT Department of Chemistry and in your area of chemistry (chemical biology, inorganic, organic, physical)*. Please consult the Faculty & Research section of the department website for listings of faculty associated with each area. List below at least four faculty (not including your advisor) that you and your advisor consider appropriate for your committee. If you are listing any faculty outside the department, you should contact them before submitting this form to confirm that they are willing to serve on your thesis committee and attend all relevant examinations. Please also indicate the faculty's home department if they are not in the Department of Chemistry.
*If your advisor is not a member of the Department of Chemistry, your thesis committee must include at least two other MIT faculty within the Department of Chemistry. As noted above, your thesis committee chair must be in your area of chemistry.
Please list the faculty in order of preference and put an asterisk (*) next to the names of those faculty you would prefer as the Chair of your committee. Please suggest at least two possible Thesis Committee Chairs.
