About Carboncopies

At the Carboncopies Foundation, we believe that the possibilities and opportunities enabled by Whole Brain Emulation (WBE) represent the most promising technological path to overcoming our fundamental limitations as a species.


To achieve WBE, essential advances are needed in neurobiology, neurophysiology, brain imaging, micro- and nanoscale technologies, computational neuroscience, computing hardware, and even the philosophy of mind. We provide peer networks and project opportunities to scientists working on challenges critical to whole brain emulation and recognize that there is a long road ahead of us.

Responsibilities

The Carboncopies Foundation is growing and needs a lead for our governance department. We are looking for someone who can take on the managerial tasks of governing, so that our resources can be used more efficiently.

  • Ensure the Carboncopies leadership team is able to effectively manage team resources in order to reach desired results.
  • Ensure the Carboncopies leadership team feels connected to their work and to each other.
  • Ensure the growth and effectiveness of Carboncopies teams through leadership.

This would be accomplished by leading the Governance team to organize workshops, develop protocols, and carry out additional support to help Carboncopies Leads grow in their roles and feel part of a greater team.

This position will allow you to develop as a leader, strengthen management skills, and create bonds with an extraordinary group of people.
