My advisor wants to become CTO but won't join full-time til Series A. How should I structure his deal?

My advisor, a veteran in the space, has gone well beyond his initial role and would be an ideal CTO. My venture won't be finishing a seed round though until the fall, and if things go well, it'll still take a year to complete a Series A. If he hypothetically wants 10% equity, how do I structure his vesting schedule?
