Dissertation Sponsors

Every Ph.D. Student has an Advisor (also called a Sponsor), a scientist in his or her field of study who monitors his or her progress towards the Ph.D. and who provides mentorship and oversight on all academic and research matters. All ranks of DEES Professors, all ranks of Lamont Research Professors, and many Ph.D.-level scientists at other affiliated institutions are preapproved to serve as Advisors. 


For a list of pre-approved PhD advisors (sponsors) in our department, please see the GSAS Approved Sponsors list.
