This is the main page for planning and organizing graduate student seating. Seating is chosen based on a seniority system with the most senior graduate students getting first pick of seating that opens. Graduate students in the same echelon must flip a coin to determine who gets the seating (or in the case of n>2 must find some other appropriate randomization system). Students whose advisors are at the museum may be asked to relinquish their spots after they finish coursework and TA responsibilities.

A list of students and their seniority can be found in the * Graduate student directory.

List of offices

Grad student spots will generally have two desks, because they will be around for 5-6 years. Postbac and RA spots are more "temporary", because they are usually around for only 1-2 years. These spots will generally have a single desk.


Aleksey's seat in 1333 (may become two bridge student desks)

Yong's seat in 1414

Sarah's seat in 1333

Julia's old seat in 207

Moiya's old seat in 207

Claim A Spot

Indicate which spot you want here:

- Adam would like any of the spots in 1410 or 1411

- Tomer would like Sarah's seat in 1333 or Yong's seat in 1414

-Aliya would like Aleksey's seat in 1333 or Yong's seat in 1414

Spaces coming available next

If you plan to move to a new spot, list your current spot here so people will know what can be claimed (and when you expect it to become available):

- Jingjing's seat in 1410 (occupied by visiting student, here through November?)

- Julia's seat in 207

- many seats in 1424, although I don't think anyone will want to move there

Editing Note: If you have seniority, replace your name in Next Occupant and add you desk to the openings list.
