Faculty Advisors

The success of CMC's summer research program (SRP) depends on the active participation of faculty. We look forward to working with you!


In early Spring, the Program Director will send out an announcement to all faculty in the social and mathematical sciences and humanities to consider offering summer research opportunities to students. (Science faculty offer summer research opportunities to students through the Keck Science Department, not through the SRP.) Faculty may have specific projects for which they would like a full-time student researcher, general openings for full-time student researchers within an active summer research lab, or may be willing to supervise a student’s full-time independent research project over 8 weeks during the summer (May 24-July 16, 2021).

Students must receive approval from the faculty member with whom they would like to work, and agree on the time expectations and outcomes of the work, before submitting their application by March 31. Potential advisors will be asked to indicate their approval of the proposed project and confirm whether the student will work on their own independent research project or a faculty member’s research project.

Students will be compensated in the form of an hourly wage ($14 or $4480 for the summer). CMC faculty receive $1000 for supervising one SRP student for the 8 weeks and $500 for each additional SRP student they supervise for the 8 weeks. Faculty may be invited to lead a weekly summer lunch seminar, and those who agree will receive a $200 honorarium.


Students and advisors will be notified of acceptance into the program by no later than May 1.
