The Centre for Effective Altruism--the umbrella organization comprising Giving What We Can, 80,000 Hours, The Life You Can Save, and Effective Animal Activism--is hiring for a position as a Research Fellow in Global Prioritisation.
In this role your overall aim would be to do high-level research into which approaches for improving the world are likely to have the best long-term expected impact. As a full-time member of the CEA team you would play an important role in finding the best ways to do good and moving resources into them. The specifics of this role are still to be determined and would be negotiated with a successful candidate.
An undergraduate degree in a subject such as development or global health, economics, econometrics, statistics, political science, ethics, mathematics, physics, philosophy or a field that offers relevant training is essential. The ideal candidate would also have several years of work or postgraduate experience, a thorough understanding of the key ideas of ‘effective altruism’ and a strong academic background, though we will consider candidates without all of these characteristics.
