Dear colleagues,

The Sentience Institute is hiring researchers to study the expansion of humanity’s moral circle, particularly the moral and social inclusion of animals and artificial intelligences. We are open to a range of research backgrounds and interests within that scope, such as qualitative and interview methods, experiments and econometric methods, and conceptual work. We’re particularly interested in the study of interactions betweem humans and nonhumans in organizations and industries.
