The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at CRASSH have announced four new post-doctoral research positions. The research associates will join a growing team of researchers developing a general methodology for the management of extreme technological risk.

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.
