The Center for the Economics of Human Development (CEHD) at the University of Chicago is actively hiring Predoctoral Fellows (Research Specialist 2) to conduct and disseminate rigorous interdisciplinary research that identifies and explores the conditions under which people develop the skills necessary to thrive in society and achieve their fullest potential. Descriptions for past and ongoing projects can be found on this website, such as ChinaREACH and the The Origins and Persistence of Inequality in Denmark Project.
Predoctoral Fellows will contribute to CEHD’s initiatives, participating in a variety of research projects in human capital, labor economics, and the economics of education and will gain experience in all aspects of the research process. Responsibilities range across the research cycle and will include cleaning and analyzing large datasets, proposing grants for new projects, writing reports or papers, and presenting research. CEHD researchers are uniquely empowered to make vital contributions to the Center’s work through collaboration and early-career co-authorship.
