Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant city. Located on the shore
of Lake Michigan, it offers an outstanding array of recreational and
cultural experiences. As the birthplace of the modern skyscraper, Chicago
boasts one of the world’s tallest and densest skylines, combined with an
extensive system of parks and public transit. Yet the cost of living,
whether in an 85th floor condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in
one of the nation’s finest school districts, is surprisingly low.

Applications must be submitted at https://jobs.uic.edu/. Please include a
resume, teaching and research statements, and contact information for three
professional references in the online application. Applicants needing
