Jobs

Right now New Science is hiring for two full-time positions:

Below are descriptions of these positions and the form via which you can apply.

If you’re excited about the mission of New Science but there’s no position listed that would fit you, feel free to submit a general application and propose a role for yourself. We expect to be hiring for Head of Services and Head of Operations positions soon.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to alexey@newscience.org if you have any questions about the roles.

If you know someone who would be a good fit, please share the position with them. If we hire the person you recommended for any role, we’ll fly you out to Boston next year during the Summer Fellowship and show what this was all about.


Y Combinator is a big inspiration for New Science. It is known for 3 independent parts:

I think about New Science in pretty similar terms. We are going to be running Programs (starting with the Summer Fellowship and eventually scaling to entire research institutes pursuing basic science), supported and enhanced by Content and Services that are useful to scientists.

Head of Program (Boston - will help with relocation if needed)

The goal for the 2022 summer fellowship is to create the single best summer research experience available to independently-minded young biology researchers in the world and to make sure that the next year every young scientist with an idea they want to explore rushes to apply.

Responsibilities:

Although the immediate responsibilities of Head of Program relate exclusively to the 2022 summer program, this could be a very much co-founder-like role in which you significantly inform the long-term strategy of New Science and will transition into a higher-leverage role e.g. after running the first fellowship.

I suspect that the ideal candidate for this position would either be an undergraduate/graduate student in the life sciences who is graduating soon or graduated in the last couple of years and who is excited by the idea of enabling others to do great research or someone with an experience of organizing programs/events who might not necessarily have a background in the life sciences but would be excited by the prospect of spending a few months becoming conversant in the field and being able to understand what would help scientists the most. If you are excited by the mission of New Science and by responsibilities outlined, do not let these hypothetical profiles defer you from applying, even if neither fits you well.

Please apply by submitting your application in the form below.

Head of Content (Boston preferred but remote also possible)

Your goal will be to either write or source pieces that will be as interesting and useful to young scientists as Paul Graham’s essays are to young entrepreneurs.

Depending on your preferences, you could either come up with most ideas of what to write about yourself and be very independent or develop most of the ideas of what to write about together with me.
