Next steps for departing research scholars
FHI is delighted to announce where the first scholars to graduate from the Research Scholars Programme are going next. Of the ten scholars who are leaving this autumn, three do not wish to make their plans public yet, and seven have plans they’re happy to have mentioned publicly:
- Ashwin Acharya begins a research analyst role at the Centre for the Study of Emerging Technology in September. He will also be studying part-time for a Masters in Security Studies at Georgetown University.
- Carina Prunkl begins a postdoctoral fellowship at the newly founded Oxford Institute for Ethics in AI in October.
- Cassidy Nelson will continue her recent appointment as acting co-lead for FHI’s biotechnology research team, alongside completing her DPhil in the Mathematical Ecology Research Group at Oxford.
- Chris van Merwijk will take up a researcher position in FHI’s AI safety team.
- Ondrej Bajgar holds a DPhil offer at Oxford in Autonomous Intelligent Machines and Systems, funded by EPSRC and DeepMind. He has also been appointed an FHI DPhil affiliate.
- Ozzie Gooen has received a grant of $200,000 from the Survival and Flourishing Fund to run the Quantified Uncertainty Research Institute.
- Xavier Tierney begins a Masters in Economics at LSE in August.
We wish the best of luck to all our departing scholars in their future endeavours.
