About Charity Entrepreneurship:
Charity Entrepreneurship is a research and training program aimed at creating multiple counterfactual EA charities annually but with a different focus area each year. Our first year was focused on poverty research. We ended up recommending 5 charities 2 of which have been founded via the charity science team. There is room for updating and improving the three other options with a particular focus on tobacco taxation. The focus of the research will be systematic, spreadsheet based and directly applicable to recommend charities being founded. It will be very similar to previous research that led to the founding of Charity Science Health and Fortify Health.
The interns will be tasked with researching key areas of interest in relating to top poverty interventions, for example, what country would be the best to focus on if lobbying the government to increase tobacco taxation. They will work together with a manager and other members of the team to slowly flesh out the best steps forward for people who found charities in these areas. They will be expected to complete their work to a high standard given the limited time that will be spent on each report. A time commitment of 5-40 hours a week is required for this position, and the intern should be familiar with research in other contexts.
