Join the Research Team

Please be aware that a research position at the Center for the Economics of Human Development requires commitment. Our research projects continue for years at a time requiring long-term commitment to Heckman’s initiatives. We highly recommend our Predoctoral Fellows work 1-2 years before joining a graduate program, and our Student Research Assistants and Associates work through graduation. Due to the continuous and ongoing nature of many of the Center’s current research projects, our researchers must be prepared to be available during academic breaks.

We accept rolling applications for general employment. If you would like to be considered for a position, please follow the applicable link below and indicate in your submission which project you are interested in.

We do not accept applications for internships.
