Research Fellow

MIRI seeks mathematicians and computer scientists to contribute to our research program. There is not just one position available for this role; we want to hire as many qualified researchers as we can find.


Research Fellow in Type Theory and Machine Self-Reference

MIRI is accepting applications for a full-time research fellow to develop theorem provers with self-referential capabilities, beginning by implementing a strongly typed language within that very language. The goal of this research project will be to help us understand autonomous systems that can prove theorems about systems with similar deductive capabilities. Applicants should have experience programming in functional programming languages, with a preference for languages with dependent types, such as Agda, Coq, or Lean.


Software Engineer

MIRI is looking for highly capable software engineers to directly support our AI alignment research efforts, with a focus on projects related to machine learning. We’re seeking engineers with strong programming skills who are passionate about MIRI’s mission and looking for challenging and intellectually engaging work. While our goal is to hire full-time, we are initially looking for paid interns. Successful internships may then transition into staff positions.
