Leverage Research Opportunities


We are always looking for exceptional individuals to join our team. We are currently hiring full-time staff members for our psychology program, our early stage science program, and operational roles. 

We are also accepting applications to our year-long research fellows program, where we support independent researchers conducting freeform explorations in underdeveloped fields of their choice.

Other ways to get involved


Apply to become a fellow

Our year-long Research Fellows program supports researchers conducting their own independent investigations in early stage fields. Unlike Leverage Staff, who work on specific research programs overseen by a lead researcher, Fellows are given the autonomy to set their own research agendas during the length of their program.

We require a minimum of 3 years of independent research experience for fellowship applicants. If you are interested in applying to our fellowship program beginning in 2021, please fill out our Fellowship Application. For insight into what our current fellows are working on, visit our research page.
