About the EPIC Predoctoral Fellowship Program
Pre-doctoral fellowships provide aspiring early career researchers with an in-depth understanding of the research process while undergoing intensive career development in a tight-knit community through a one- or two-year program.
Life at EPIC
While serving as an EPIC Pre-Doctoral Fellow, Fellows engage with the academic and social life of EPIC and the larger University of Chicago community through year-round programming, including an Orientation Week, dedicated workshop, coursework, and more.
Meet our Fellows
EPIC’s outstanding pre-doctoral fellows have gone on to some of the country’s top PhD programs. Five pre-doctoral fellows have won prestigious and highly-competitive National Science Foundation grants.
Fellowship Opportunities
Successful candidates will serve as research assistants for EPIC-affiliated faculty, or work with the Climate Impact Lab under the direction of EPIC Director Michael Greenstone.
