Research Fellows

The Fama-Miller Center for Research in Finance (FMC) offers highly accomplished, early career researchers the opportunity to generate exceptional research in finance and to participate and contribute to the academic environment at the University of Chicago.

One- to two- year terms are offered to promising scholars who have earned their doctorate in finance/economics or related fields and have a demonstrated record of research achievement.

This program is designed for research fellows to be an integral part of the finance group at Chicago Booth without teaching responsibilities. Research Fellows will be able to engage in the intellectual environment at the University of Chicago through workshops, presentations, and collaborations with faculty and other researchers, while pursuing independent research in the field of finance.
