The Center for the Economics of Human Development (CEHD) at the University of Chicago invites applications for Research Specialist(s). 

The research specialist will contribute to CEHD's robust research 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. The two historic houses at 5740 and 5750 S. Woodlawn Avenue, once the home of the University of Chicago Lab School’s Nursery School, continue their lives as the physical home for the Center for the Economics of Human Development, deeply connecting CEHD to its mission. Within these houses, researchers are immersed in rigorous and meaningful research evaluating the lasting impact of early childhood development on children throughout their lives, working together cohesively, holding impromptu and scheduled workshops and conferences, and collaborating with leadership, academic visitors and research partners. This framework brings a wide breadth of experience to our team with key researchers engaged with CEHD throughout all the stages of their academic careers. The culture of continued engagement has cultivated a thriving research community in which senior researchers mentor and supervise junior researchers in support of over thirty active research projects.
