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/.
