RPs are often graduates of bachelor’s or master’s programs in the quantitative social sciences, though Booth’s capacious and interdisciplinary research means that many RPs have mathematics, psychology, or engineering backgrounds. PRs possess a PhD, and they collaborate with faculty on their research.

Our current RPs and PRs can be found below. To see a list of current openings, visit Join Our Team.

Research Professionals

These one- to two-year positions help many RPs move into top-tier PhD programs at business schools or in the social sciences. Some RPs choose to begin careers in industry or the public sector as researchers or data scientists.
