Hello EA forum,
I'm a faculty at MIT Sloan Sloan of Management, and I'm hiring a predoc (someone who's finished their undergraduate degree, but not yet in a PhD program) to work with me on projects related to improving human collectives using mathematical modeling and data analysis skills. This is a very broad area, some projects related to this area include understanding the trends of increasing regulation in organizations and society, and studying conditions under which collective decision-making reaches certain outcomes.
I think improving the functioning of human collectives is highly relevant to mitigating global catastrophic risks. I detail this perspective in the article "Collective Intelligence as Infrastructure for Reducing Broad Global Catastrophic Risks".
The detailed job posting is here: https://apply.interfolio.com/117874
The start date of the position is flexible between February and Sept 2023.
