BERI is the Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative.
This is BERI's first "core" hire since I was hired 3 years ago—all of our hires since then are embedded at some particular research group, and aren't responsible for running BERI as an organization.
This is a great opportunity for an early- to mid-career person with some experience and interest in operations. I expect that the Deputy Director will contribute substantially to BERI's strategy and direction moving forward.
I'd prefer the person to be based in New York City (where I am), but remote is also an option.
Here's a bunch of links to persuade you to work at BERI:
- My thoughts on what BERI is and why I think it's important
- The 22 awesome research groups we collaborate with
- Results from BERI's collaborator survey in January (people like BERI)
- Annual reports for 2020 and 2021, which show how much BERI has done and include thoughts on future directions.
