Research Staff

About Us

The Booth School of Business research staff program is an unparalleled opportunity for researchers with undergraduate or graduate experience to support award-winning faculty research. Research Professionals (RPs) and Principal Researchers (PRs) typically spend two to three years gaining firsthand experience with the research process, working closely with their faculty supervisor. Research Professionals have gone on to top PhD programs in Economics and other social sciences, including programs at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Wharton, Berkeley, and UChicago. Principal Researchers have entered the academic job market or taken industry positions. Research staff build invaluable and collaborative relationships with Chicago Booth faculty and fellow RPs and PRs by engaging in UChicago’s rigorous intellectual environment. While at Chicago Booth, research staff hone their research skillset and engage in a bevy of programs—from a coding workshop to writing seminar—that prepares them to undertake independent research.
