Description: Wild Animal Suffering / Welfare Biology Research Manager
Location: Remote, open to international candidates
Animal Ethics is an internationally operating charity dedicated to building a better world for all sentient beings. We have an antispeciesist approach and are concerned with always improving our effectiveness to maximize our impact. We’re committed to defending animals exploited by humans and the spread of veganism, and our major focus is raising concern about wild animal suffering and what we can do about it. Do you share our goals? You can work remotely with us on a flexible schedule
One of our main fields of work is the promotion of the creation of welfare biology, the scientific study of the situation of animals in the wild and of the ways to act to reduce the harms they regularly suffer not just due to human action but also to natural causes. With this aim, Animal Ethics conducts research in wild animal suffering, and is working on ways to promote such research in academia. We are looking for someone with the capacity to further and coordinate this work. The candidate should be able to research and compose solid grant applications, and foster the creation of partnerships with university departments, research centers, and animal and effective altruist organizations to promote research.
The person in this position should be able to carry out these tasks with little supervision, and will be reporting to the Board and the Director. Compensation will depend on salary standards in the applicant’s country of residence.
