The Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford is a leading multidisciplinary research centre looking at big-picture questions for human civilisation. Using the tools of mathematics, philosophy, and science, the Institute explores the risks and opportunities that will arise from technological change, weighs ethical dilemmas, and evaluates global priorities, with the goal of clarifying the choices that will shape humanity’s long-term future. The Future of Humanity Institute is part of the Faculty of Philosophy and is associated with the Oxford Martin School.
We welcome expressions of interest from researchers and administrators who would like to join our multi-disciplinary team focused on improving the long-run future of humanity.
