Eligibility to Mentor Students in Research
All tenured, tenure-track, and research-track faculty at the college and professional schools may supervise undergraduates in research. Research-track faculty includes research assistant professors, research associate professors, and research professors. Geisel School of Medicine faculty with the titles of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor may supervise undergraduates in research.
Faculty with other types of appointments may supervise undergraduates with relevant department or program chair, director, or dean approval. Examples of other types of appointment types include: visiting faculty, adjunct faculty, emeritus faculty, lecturer, senior lecturer, instructor, and post-doctoral scholar.
NOTE: it is expected that student researchers and faculty mentors both be on campus during the term(s) of the research unless there is a compelling reason to waive this requirement.
