Full-time RA positions at Chicago Booth for Summer 2021
We’re excited to announce the Fall 2020 recruiting period for Research Professionals at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. We’re currently hiring full-time research assistants to start around July 1, 2021, though other start dates will be considered. The research assistants will work closely on faculty research, with faculty across an array of disciplines hiring this fall. We currently have positions open with our Accounting and Microeconomics faculty. Additional positions will be opened throughout the fall and can be found at our website, and job seekers can sign up at our mailing list to be directly contacted about new positions. We are eager to recruit students of diverse academic backgrounds with strong quantitative skills, not just economists.
Research Professionals and similar positions at other universities are relatively new to the academic pipeline, but they are quickly becoming an integral part of it in economics departments and at business schools. Such positions are an excellent option for anyone considering a PhD program who is still uncertain, or as an alternative for anyone considering a Master’s degree as a step toward a PhD. Anyone who would like to learn more should visit www.predoc.org for more information and an aggregated list of opportunities from several institutions.
Interested students should email Research.Professional@lists.chicagobooth.edu to learn more. This position has been an excellent preparation for PhD programs in the quantitative social sciences, with previous participants going on to institutions like Harvard, Berkeley, Stanford, and UChicago.
