The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, an interdisciplinary initiative housed in the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) has announced four new post-doctoral research positions.
The new researchers will work with a growing team in CSER, who are dedicated to the study and mitigation of risks that could lead to human extinction. The posts are for research in three sub-projects: Evaluation of extreme technological risk; Extreme risk and the culture of science, and; Responsible innovation and extreme technological risk.
CSER are also looking to appoint an academic project manager, who will play a central role in developing the Centre into a world-class research institution.
The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk is a joint initiative between a philosopher, a scientist, and a software entrepreneur, and was founded on the conviction that extreme technological, cultural and global risks require a great deal more scientific investigation than they presently receive.
