We are hiring. Join Convergence!

Researcher

Convergence is looking for a fellow researcher with excellent writing skills. As researcher, you would join us in developing and publishing models on existential risk reduction.

Key properties:

  • Writing skill. Good at explaining things and taking complex subjects and bridging them to the reader.
  • Technical ability. Such as in mathematics, programming, and/or physics.
  • Theorizing and model-building ability.
  • A personal drive to reduce existential risk to humanity.
  • Conscientiousness.

Also valued: generalist skills and an interest in applying them. We’re in a startup stage and everything flows more smoothly if everyone can pitch in to help with various kinds of tasks.

The position will be based in Berkeley, CA, in the long term. In the near-term, the ability to travel will be especially desirable..

You will get the chance to work in a dynamic startup-like environment and help build the nascent field of existential risk strategy. 

If you’re interested, mail your CV and ideally samples of your writing to dkristoffersson [at gmail dot com] and include “technical writer” in the subject line. We look forward to hearing from you.
