Candidates who are interested in conducting MTI research studies must first undergo an in-depth certification process. Each candidate is required to submit a completed application with a résumé, and a sample of published research. The Research Associates Policy Oversight Committee (RAPOC), composed of the department heads or representatives of the SJSU academic departments with which MTI works most often, reviews the applications and recommends certification where appropriate. Certification is approved by the executive director and must be renewed every five years.
To apply for certification as a Research or Consulting Associate for the Mineta Transportation Institute, please complete the interactive application form. The form must be signed and accompanied by a current curriculum vitae or résumé, along with a sample of published research.
Please submit all materials electronically to Dr. Hilary Nixon, MTI Deputy Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
