ESPR runs applied rationality camps for high school and undergraduate students and has a growing alumni community.

(Junior) Operations Manager

We are looking for someone who can help us support the organization throughout the year. This concludes communications, supporting applications process, handling finances and legal matters, pre-logistics of events, and a variety of other tasks. 

This could be an excellent part-time (0.3 - 1 FTE) opportunity for those who'd like to gain more operations skills and gradually gain more responsibility. 

You could work from anywhere in the world and could join us for our events in Europe.

Event & Logistics Manager (Seasonal)

We're looking for people who can help us run (and support from the background) in-person events in Europe. 

If you have experience with running in-person events, are attentive to detail, and would enjoy working even with your hands and muscles to create the best environment and atmosphere for an event, we'd love to hear from you. 

We run multiple events per year and need an excellent logistics team for each of them.

If you're interested in either of these roles, please fill in this form or email

Ah, sorry, Peter, for the misunderstanding! 

That wouldn't be possible. For the purposes of the fellowship, a (near) full-time commitment for 10-12 weeks is needed. 

We strongly prefer individual bounty claims, a team claim would be really hard to judge. If a case like this comes up, I suggest you divide the bounty yourselves.

I expect the most common bounty award will be the case when someone lets their friend know the fellowship exists, and they apply and succeed.

Thanks :) 

There were multiple reasons

  • We had one extra week we could use for outreach while meeting our deadline for announcing the final decisions. 
  • We've gained outreach momentum last week and it seemed useful to carry it over to this one. We've also come up with additional outreach ideas, including this bounty.
  • A couple of people already asked for a deadline extension.

The amount and quality of the applications we've received so far are within our expectations, which means we haven't made any larger updates about the success of the program. However, a large fraction of the value of the program is determined by the fellows, so we are willing to invest additional resources to identify the top candidates.
