About Anthropic
Anthropic is an AI safety and research company that’s working to build reliable, interpretable, and steerable AI systems. We want AI to be safe and beneficial for our customers and for society as a whole. Our interdisciplinary team has experience across ML, physics, policy, business and product.

Representative projects:

  • Briefing a diverse set of policy and research actors that are looking to better understand AI safety and AI policy opportunities
  • Convening diverse stakeholders and speaking at policy events such as research announcements, discussion panels, or workshops on AI safety topics
  • Building a network of academic stakeholders to collaboratively advocate for increased government support of AI safety research
  • Supporting senior colleagues in external engagements by preparing meeting briefs and taking action on follow-up requests
  • Developing new programming and generating opportunities for Anthropic to regularly engage with policymakers, think tanks, and non-profit organizations
  • Collaborating with policy and technical teams to translate Anthropic research into concrete policy proposals, stakeholder education, and thought leadership opportunities
  • Developing and amplifying public submissions, responses to requests for information (RFI), and policy memos written by Anthropic to drive positive change in AI policy
  • Partnering with non-profit organizations and academic researchers to publish discussion papers and policy memos on how to enable responsible AI research & development
  • Tracking and monitoring significant policy, legislative, legal, or regulatory developments in the assigned areas of responsibility, in Asia and Oceania markets

You might be a good fit if you:

  • Thrive when engaging with governments, policymakers, and civil society to translate complex technical topics into accessible information
  • Know what resources will be useful for policymakers to understand and act on a particular issue area
  • Have demonstrated success in identifying and convening relevant stakeholders
  • Have a track record of effective, information-rich advocacy in policy and related communities
  • Are motivated to better equip governments to understand the pace of progress in the AI field and develop effective policies
  • Are adept at creating compelling narratives and real-world examples to support your advocacy efforts
  • Enjoy thinking through the policy implications of technical developments and industry trends, and relating them to the interests and priorities of Asia and Oceania policymakers
  • Have a deep curiosity for frontier technological research and are eager to work closely with technical colleagues
  • Have extensive experience engaging legislators or regulators in Asia and Oceania
  • Have demonstrated an ability to quickly get up to speed on complex technical areas and policy dynamics

Strong candidates may also:

  • Have extensive experience engaging leading policy actors in Asia and Oceania
  • Have demonstrated an ability to quickly get up to speed on complex technical areas and policy dynamics
  • Have an established track record of working in the technology industry

Annual Salary (USD):

  • The expected salary range for this position is $230,000 - $260,000.

Candidates need not have:

  • 100% of the skills needed to perform the job
  • Formal certifications or education credentials
We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed. Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.

How we're different
We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills. We do not have boundaries between engineering and research, and we expect all of our technical staff to contribute to both as needed.
The easiest way to understand our research directions is to read our recent research. This research continues many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.
