About the Role

Open Philanthropy is looking to hire a new attorney to contribute to the legal team’s mission of providing well-calibrated legal advice and engaging in collaborative and creative problem-solving. The attorney would handle issues related to grantmaking, contracts, and various aspects of operations for causes including potential risks from advanced AI, biosecurity and pandemic preparedness, global health and wellbeing, and farm animal welfare.

You would join the team as our fifth attorney and seventh team member, and report to our General Counsel Molly Kovite to help our growing team navigate legal questions and collaborate with staff to generate solutions.

We’d prefer candidates to have 5+ years’ experience practicing in the legal field. We’d also be willing to consider individuals with significantly more experience and would be open to customizing and expanding the job duties based on skills, experience, and fit with Open Phil’s needs.
