The Future of Humanity Institute is now opening applications for our AI Alignment Visiting Fellowship. This fellowship allows individuals to visit us for a period of three or more months to pursue research related to the theory or design of human-aligned AI.
This arrangement differs from the “AISML internship” offered in previous years, by giving visiting fellows greater autonomy in their respective projects.
Who should apply?
We have previously accepted applicants ranging from undergraduate to postdoc level. A successful applicant will usually have two or more of: (i) published (or acclaimed) papers in machine learning or other theoretical fields, (ii) great academic referees, (iii) relevant graduate education, (iv) clear ideas for AI alignment research, and/or (v) good Olympiad/competition results.
The summer 2020 cohort
For visitors seeking to visit during summer 2020, we require you to apply before February 28. We expect to accept 2-3 applicants.
For visitors seeking to visit at any later time, we will continue to review applications around the beginning of each month, throughout 2020, and into the indefinite future.
To apply, please submit a CV and 3/4-page statement of interest here.
