Open Philanthropy plans to grant more than $300 million per year to causes in our Global Health and Wellbeing (GHW) portfolio over the next few years.

We’re hiring for two types of roles (Research and Strategy Fellows) on the GHW portfolio’s Cause Prioritization team, which works closely with senior leadership and program officers to conduct research that improves our grantmaking and high-level strategy.[1] 
 

The team’s work includes:

  • Investigating potential new cause areas
  • Evaluating and prioritizing across existing cause areas
  • Advancing research agendas within existing cause areas
  • Contributing to high-level strategy decisions
  • Partnering with other organizations and philanthropists to advance the practice of cost-effective grantmaking

 

To illustrate what these roles involve day-to-day, here are a few recent projects managed by Research and Strategy Fellows on the GHW Cause Prioritization team: 

The team is fully remote; you can work from anywhere (time zones permitting — see the listing for more). And these positions don’t require specialized experience — though we are especially interested in candidates who have experience living or working in low- and middle-income countries.

    Note that these roles would not have a significant focus on our Farm Animal Welfare grantmaking, though this is included in the GHW portfolio.

Thanks for sharing.

Note that these roles would not have a significant focus on our Farm Animal Welfare grantmaking, though this is included in the GHW portfolio.

Are there plans to have similar roles for Farm Animal Welfare? I feel like there is room to scope out new sub-areas. For example, in the context of bringing about animal-inclusive AI.

We don't currently have concrete plans for this, but it's something we might consider doing in the future; if we do, we'll post about it on the Forum.

This seems like a great opportunity. It is now live on the EA Opportunity Board!
