THIS POSITION IS NOW CLOSED
Applications are invited for a high impact Project Manager for FHI’s Macrostrategy research group – senior researchers who investigate which crucial considerations are shaping what is at stake for the future of humanity.
Macrostrategy research is developing better intellectual tools for analyzing the connections between current actions and long-term outcomes, and applying these to key decision-relevant uncertainties for benevolently motivated actors e.g. in the context of technology strategy. Many of the core concepts and techniques within this field originate from research by FHI scholars, and they are already having a practical impact, such as in the effective altruism movement.
Successful applicant will provide project management and research management for the Institute’s macrostrategy research including: co-ordinating and developing research activity; creating and maintaining opportunities to amplify the impact of research; acting as an ambassador for the team and engaging with other existential risk organisations; organising meetings, workshops and seminars; and assisting in the recruitment of researchers and other staff.
The post is fixed-term from the date of appointment for 2 years, and we can sponsor a visa for those who do not have a right to work in the UK.
The postholder is required to have an undergraduate degree, excellent intellectual capacity and communication skills, a proven track record of successfully managing projects and completing complex project under pressure, as well as an ability to contribute ideas for new research projects and research income generation.
Please apply (see note below) here. Applications are to be submitted no later than 12.00 noon on 24 April 2019.
