It would be so great if you could work together with us
We are starting really small, but have a clear vision for scaling up by a large factor. We won't tell you how large because you would call us delusional. Let's just say we expect this organization to have a significant impact on the world.
Our positions will be remote (that is, almost anywhere), or in cities such as Tokyo, or in places where education is needed most, such as low-income areas in developing countries.
Academic / educational positions
Please get in touch with us right away if you are interested in any of these positions: We will be hiring teaching assistants and instructors, full-time or part-time. Instructors can include, among others, faculty members at traditional universities either on a part-time basis, or for summers, sabbaticals, and other occasions.
Once we have reached sufficient scale, we will open long-term full-time positions for researchers who would otherwise seek faculty positions at traditional universities. There will be important differences. To judge the researchers' work, we will appreciate also their contributions to open science, data sharing, open source software, public education and awareness, and many other kinds of public goods. Our contracts will give maximum flexibility and certainty to anyone who needs it. This is to eliminate gender unfairness in academia: The tenure system at traditional universities was designed a long time ago with only men in mind. It puts most work pressure on female faculty at the very moment when they need to or prefer to spend time with their small children. We will be able to do better. Please let us know if you would be interested in such positions. That would help us speed up the process of opening them. We are interested in all areas of academic research that utilize insights from data.
One of the most important reasons for building our organization is to bring high-quality education to low-income areas in developing countries. Our plan is to build low-cost computer systems from components and use them for education purposes. With our online instruction, we will make sure that reasonably paying jobs are accessible to those who would otherwise not be able to afford basic necessities. Our advanced instruction will be also open to them if they would like to continue once they have mastered the basics.
Can you help us with that? Please let us know. We will have part-time positions available for those who would like to help us with the logistics on the ground in developing countries, or for example, with reaching out to representatives of communities that would benefit from our project.
