Work

BERI primarily hires hourly part-time employees and contractors to assist x-risk motivated researchers and help with BERI’s internal operations. Occasionally, we may seek a full-time employee.

If you’re interested in working with us, please submit an application form (linked on each job posting below). Once you have submitted the application, you will join our waiting list. (You should receive an automatic response from Google confirming that we have received your submission). We’ll contact you for an interview when either:

  • We have work available, or
  • We decide that we would like you to complete a (paid) trial project for us, so that we have a better understanding of your capabilities going forward.

For each role or work category listed below, we include the hours we expect to have available within that role or category. However, note that these estimates are rough. We generally prefer to contract with a single person who would like to take on the entirety of a workload, but we are willing to contract with more than one person, each of whom takes some of the surplus.

Note regarding wait times: Because projects require management capacity, it could take several months between when a potential contractor first applies and when BERI has work or a trial project for them.
