Research Professionals

Research Professionals (RPs) are often graduates of degree programs in the quantitative social sciences, though Chicago Booth’s capacious and interdisciplinary research means that many RPs have mathematics, psychology, or engineering backgrounds. These one- to two-year positions help many RPs to 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. You can find current RP openings here.
