In the Chicago Booth Research Staff Program, 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 Booth faculty and fellow RPs and PRs by engaging in UChicago’s rigorous intellectual environment. While at Booth, research staff hone their skill sets and engage in a bevy of programs—from coding workshops to writing seminars—that prepare them to undertake independent research.
