Remote or in Boulder, CO – Starting early 2022 – Research stipend $31k per year
Pax Fauna conducts hands-on research to design an ultra-savvy new mass movement organization. We aim to transform the messaging, strategy, and organizing methods of the grassroots animal freedom movement.
We have the vibe of a small startup. We move fast, but make time for laughter and play. Work is highly self-directed and no one is "the boss."
Our work is always evolving, but basically consists of devouring the literature on a topic, identifying hypotheses or missing pieces, and working together to design experiments, all to uncover the most powerful ways the animal movement can operate. Remote partners travel to Boulder for quarterly retreats.
Our current team has a strong background in social movement organizing. We operate as a team with a single shared objective. Valuing teamwork and collective intelligence is a must, as is wanting to get to know your colleagues beyond a simple work relationship.
Pax Fauna’s long-term mission is the development of a new mass movement organization for animal freedom. Together, we are collecting best practices, uncovering new insights, and building our individual and collective capacity to lead a dramatic social transformation. While working together, we encourage each other to develop specific expertise in all the areas a social movement needs.
