Research Scientist, Societal Harms of AI

Website openai OpenAI

OpenAI’s mission is to develop safe artificial general intelligence (“AGI”) that benefits all of humanity. While we are a US-based organization, this mission transcends borders. Our ability to deeply understand the actual and potential harms of our decisions and of AI more broadly is critical to achieving this mission.

As a Research Scientist on the Policy Research team at OpenAI, you’ll contribute directly to short-term and long-term analyses that inform OpenAI’s strategies as we pursue responsible research and deployment of our AI systems. We are looking for a researcher who is excited to collaborate across the technical and policy teams in the organization. The role will involve conducting research of immediate relevance to OpenAI decision-making but a researcher in this role will also have a broad remit to conduct and publish research following their own agenda, and latitude to collaborate with relevant external scholars.

The ideal candidate will be self-directed and will enjoy asking foundational research questions, creative research design, analytical problem solving, and engaging broad audiences with their research.
