The University of Chicago is committed to recruiting and retaining top scholars. The Neubauer Family Assistant Professors Program invests in early-career scholars demonstrating exceptional promise.
Made possible by a $25 million commitment from the Neubauer Family Foundation, the program supports tenure-track appointments for up to 20 outstanding, early-career faculty. Neubauer Family Assistant Professors are selected by a committee comprised of senior faculty across various disciplines. Each Neubauer Family Assistant Professor receives research support and guaranteed leave to pursue scholarship.
