Actively seeking passionate people
At the Allen Institute, we’re fulfilling Paul Allen’s enduring quest to push the limits of human exploration by unlocking the knowledge inside each of us. Our scientific divisions work in thoughtfully calibrated teams that continually find new ways past convention, while measuring ourselves against clear goals and metrics.
The Allen Institute is committed to an inclusive culture which encourages, nurtures, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees, collaborators, partners, and communities. We believe that team science significantly benefits from the participation of diverse voices, experiences and backgrounds. High-quality science can only be produced when it includes different perspectives. We are committed to increasing diversity across every team and encourage people from all backgrounds to apply to our open positions.
