Ideally we would be looking to fill this particular post by early 2017 (so a December 2016 graduate or a past graduate) but it may also be that additional candidates would also be considered from the pool of students who will be graduating in the spring of 2017.  We will be looking to hire a couple individuals both at the same level.  Any candidates which express interest can forward their resume to my attention (via my e-mail):

dsingleton@yendallhunter.com

Our firm is currently in the process of negotiating a lease for office space in the Chicago area which will either be located downtown in the Loop (in Chicago) or out in Oak Brook.  That may be something that the candidate would want to know as well.

Now in its second year, Research Live! asks graduate students from all disciplines to hone their presentation skills and highlight their work by giving a compelling 3-minute, 2-slide talk for a general audience.

You know that students in your program are engaged in exciting, ground-breaking research and creative work. You know just how impressive and interesting they can be. Now you can encourage your students to show off all that hard work and creativity at Research Live!.

Graduate students can learn more, find resources to help them prepare, and register to compete on this page. Registration closes on October 26.

Last year, over 60 students competed in preliminary rounds and 12 took part in the finals. (You can view the finalists’ presentations here.) This year, we hope to have even more students participate from an even greater variety of disciplines.
