1: Open Philanthropy Project (multi-billion-dollar EA-ish grantmaker) asks me to mention that they’re looking to hire more people for “grantmaking, research, and operations” roles, especially in AI policy, technical AI alignment, and biosecurity/pandemic preparedness. Location varies between SF, DC, and remote, pay is mostly between $100K and $150K, and jobs require some combination of good reasoning skills, research skills, organizedness, and domain knowledge (not all jobs require all four of those things). I can’t say enough good things about current Open Phil employees - you would be working with some of the brightest and most interesting people in the world. Q&A with some Open Phil employees about the new hiring round here; if you’re interested, apply before November 9.
