Chicago Booth Research OpportunitiesThe University of Chicago Booth School of Business has launched its fall recruiting cycle for pre-docs. Pre-docs (sometimes called Research Professionals or full-time RAs) are two-year full-time appointments working directly for faculty on their research in the quantitative social sciences (QSS), like economics, business, political science, behavioral science, and others. Students who are interested in graduate study in QSS fields but do not yet feel ready for a PhD program, or who are uncertain whether they want to pursue a PhD, find these positions to be especially useful. Students with rigorous quantitative backgrounds outside of the social sciences (e.g., physics, engineering) have used the pre-doctoral path to transition into QSS fields. Through their work for faculty, pre-docs expand their research toolkit, learn more about the research process, and pick up important credentialing through faculty letters of reference. These are competitively paid positions with full benefits.

If you know of students at any stage in their undergraduate career who might be interested in a research career, please encourage them to visit our website to learn more ( ). Students can sign up to hear about new job opportunities when they are ready to apply (e.g., a freshman could sign up to hear about new postings in three years). The PREDOC Consortium also provides a wealth of programming and information sessions, as well as guides to the pre-doc application process. PREDOC’s offerings are growing rapidly, so students should sign up to receive updates.

Staff at Booth and PREDOC are more than happy to answer any questions you or your students have about pre-doctoral opportunities. Please email us at or with any questions or to arrange a meeting or information session. Please don’t hesitate to reach out as one of our goals at Booth is to reduce as much as possible the informational frictions surrounding these positions, to help you advise your students effectively.

Open Houses and Admissions Events

Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant Masters ProgramCase Western Reserve University School of Medicine has had a satellite location in the DMV — located in Washington, DC since 2012.

We train students in anesthesia and are looking to increase our local recruitment efforts.

We are a medical masters degree program specializing in anesthesia care. It is a two years degree program where students learn to administer all aspects of anesthesia as part of a care team. It is a niche field of medicine, so we realize anesthesia may not be of interest for every student advisee. For those who might be interested we have some incredible outcomes and benefits to training with us.

Our students experience two years of hands-on clinical training at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, Georgetown University Hospital, George Washington University Hospital, Children’s National Medical Center, and about 20 more learning hospitals across the country. Our student’s clinical training is supplemented with high fidelity O.R. anesthesia simulation and didactic instruction as well.

Our students also take their certifying board exam while they are still training with us and nearly all are signed to jobs prior to graduation.

We have a 98% board pass ratio.
We have 100% job placement.
And, starting salary for a CAA is approximately $160K.

Here are a few short videos with more info and our website: (this is for Cleveland, we are currently working on a promotional video for DC as well)
