The position

We=E2=80=99re seeking multiple research fellows who can work with our other
research fellows to solve open problems related to superintelligence
alignment, and prepare those results for publication. For those with
some graduate study or a Ph.D. in a relevant field, the salary starts at
$65,000 to $75,000 per year, depending on experience. For more senior
researchers, the salary may be substantially higher, depending on
experience. All full-time employees are covered by our company health
insurance plan. Visa assistance is available if needed.

Ours is a young field. Our current research agenda includes work on
tiling agents, logical uncertainty, decision theory, corrigibility, and
value learning, but those subtopics do not exhaust the field. Other
research topics will be seriously considered if you can make the case
for their tractability and their relevance to the design of
self-modifying systems which stably pursue humane values.

This is not a limited-term position. The ideal candidate has a career
interest in these research questions and aims to develop into a senior
research fellow at MIRI, or aims to continue these avenues of research
at another institution after completing substantial work at MIRI.
Some properties you should have

Published research in computer science, logic, or mathematics.
Enough background in the relevant subjects (computer science, logic,
etc.) to understand MIRI=E2=80=99s technical publications.
A proactive research attitude, and an ability to generate productive
new research ideas.

A formal degree in mathematics or computer science is not required, but
is recommended.
Our recommended path for becoming a MIRI research fellow

Unfortunately, no university yet offers advanced degrees in our field of
superintelligence alignment, and few people that we don=E2=80=99t already k=
now
publish work in the field. Thus, we are unlikely to hire researchers on
the basis of their past academic history alone.

Therefore, to demonstrate the research ability we seek in research
fellow hiring candidates, applicants should aim to do one or more of the
following things:

Attend one or more MIRI research workshops. Apply here.
Attend several meetings of the MIRIx group nearest you.
Study our research thoroughly enough that you can publish
interesting new technical contributions on our IAFF forum.

About MIRI

MIRI=E2=80=99s mission is to ensure that the creation of smarter-than-human
intelligence has a positive impact. Our strategic focus is our technical
research agenda on =E2=80=9Csuperintelligence alignment,=E2=80=9D composed =
of numerous
subproblems in AI, logic, decision theory, and other fields.

Our technical research program currently employs four full-time research
fellows, fosters collaboration with our research associates and others,
runs several research workshops each year, and funds
independently-organized MIRIx workshops around the world.

Our offices are located in downtown Berkeley, two blocks from the UC
Berkeley campus. We work flexible hours, and sometimes work from home,
though working from the office is nice because it has free meals,
snacks, and drinks.



Before applying for a fellowship, you=E2=80=99ll need to have attended at l=
east
one research workshop.
