Applications are open for a Summer Research Programme, run by Prof Greaves and Dr Hutchinson, to take place during Trinity Term (May-June) 2019. We are looking for researchers from a variety of fields to join us in Oxford to conduct foundational research on how to do the most good. Successful applicants will be PhD students and early career researchers at top universities in economics, philosophy or other relevant fields. Background knowledge of effective altruism is helpful but not essential.

About the programme

We expect visiting researchers to produce a piece of research on a topic of central importance to benefiting others effectively.  This may be related to the researcher’s previous work (including PhD thesis), but it need not be. Visiting researchers will work closely with the other researchers at the institute, and they will have the opportunity to present their work at our work-in-progress seminar. They will also be invited to attend our seminar series on the foundations of effective altruism.

How to apply

We welcome applications on an ongoing basis, and early applications are encouraged. To apply, please send your CV, a research proposal (1 page), a polished writing sample, and a reference from your PhD supervisor (or another academic reference) to Michelle Hutchinson [email protected].
