The effective altruism movement is allocating hundreds of millions of dollars and millions of person hours per year to improve the world. Rethink Priorities is a research organization aimed at uncovering actionable insights across different EA causes, improving the effectiveness of this time and money. We’re guided by our founding values– we care about transparency, tractability, short feedback loops, actionability, and impact assessment.
We’re excited to announce we are looking to hire junior and senior researchers. We think our research is well-placed to make a difference and we’re looking for part-time and full-time researchers to help us do new research to dramatically improve this impact throughout the effective altruism movement.
