Thanks for your interest in Refine, an incubator for conceptual alignment research. The program is a three-month fully-paid fellowship for helping aspiring independent researchers find, formulate, and get funding for new conceptual alignment research bets, ideas that are promising enough to try out for a few months to see if they have more potential. 

The program includes:

    • Travel and Housing: Round-trip plane/train tickets to and from London, housing for the duration of the program, as well as public transportation within London.
    • Stipend:  A stipend of ~$3,000/month (after tax) to cover meals and discretionary expenses.
    • Office Infrastructure: A desk in the Conjecture office (and tech setup when needed) and access to Conjectureโ€™s conference rooms and other amenities.
    • Collaboration: Formal opportunities to discuss research directions with other conceptual and applied alignment researchers and engineers at Conjecture, and opportunities to meet and share ideas with other London-based alignment researchers.
    • Funding Assistance: Help in finding funding opportunities and in writing grant proposals for continuing to study research bets after the incubator.
Itโ€™s worth noting that while the incubator is being housed by Conjecture, fellows do not have any constraints imposed by the company. Fellows will not have to work on Conjectureโ€™s research agendas or be obligated to collaborate after the program is over.

We anticipate that this application will take roughly 1 hour to complete. 

We review these applications on a rolling basis and hope to respond within a week, and come to a decision within a month from the date of submission.
