Wanted: pandemic project lead

Metaculus Meta

The high interest and proliferation of questions on the novel coronavirus calls for dedicated attention, which led to the formation of pandemic.metaculus.com. Managing it, though, is straining our very limited staff and community moderator team. Contingent on acquisition of funding (which we are working to secure), we're looking to bring onboard someone to help manage this project. Components would include:

  • Managing the pandemic site and question series as a sort of "editor in chief" working with the community moderators (as Tamay does now for Metaculus in general.)

  • Helping build data products and analyses out of the questions and results.

The above indicates a range of skills including some understanding of Metaculus, good writing/editing skills, and data analysis capability. Science background would be great, and huge bonus for actual medical knowledge. This is probably a part-time role but full-ish time is also imaginable depending upon the person, the duration, and funding.

If you're interested, please send a note and CV to jobs@metaculus.com.

Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, March 17.
