Teaching Fellows in the Social Sciences

The Teaching Fellows Program is a competitive two-year program designed to enhance the pedagogical skills and extend research training for recent graduates of doctoral programs in the Division. The program fosters a learning community in which Fellows gain additional teaching experience and professionalization in preparation for the job market while continuing to advance their research agendas.

Individuals accepted to the program have demonstrated excellence in their original scholarship, as well as in teaching. The program provides guidance and support, drawing on the expertise of faculty mentors from departments along with the resources of the Chicago Center for Teaching and UChicago GRAD.

Matthew Briones, Associate Professor in the Department of History, is faculty director of the Teaching Fellows. For more information, email the Dean of Students Office.
