CEHD's research is guided by Professor James J. Heckman to include a comprehensive array of interrelated and interdisciplinary projects and initiatives which promote a thorough empirical understanding of human flourishing. Unifying this research is an evolving body of ideas that capacities and skills acquired over the lifecycle, starting at conception, transform many aspects of the life course at all stages, ranging from employment and earning prospects to overall health. Professor James J. Heckman and his research team work to advance knowledge by producing empirical and theoretical research that integrates ideas and methods across the social and natural sciences and creates rigorous evidence for public policy. CEHD's robust research initiatives produce innovative, sound, evidence-based support for high-quality investments in programs that foster skills over the lifecycle. The research specialist will contribute to these 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.

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.
