Professors Jennifer Brier and Elena Gutierrez seek a UIC undergraduate research assistant to work with us on our year-long collaborative project to collect oral histories of Chicana activists in Chicago. Co-PIs Brier and Gutierrez plan to collect more than a dozen oral histories in the fall 2014 semester. The research assistant will be responsible for maintaining a secondary research data base, coordinating oral history sessions, scheduling the use of equipment by various partners, participating in oral history sessions (technical support and interviewing), digitizing materials, annotating and revising transcriptions of interviews, and generally supporting the research related to this project.
We seek someone who can commit to 12-15 hours per week for the fall, with the possibility of extending it through the spring. Applicants should be well-organized, competent in secondary research skills and able to work independently. Archival research, internet savvy, Spanish language competency and interview experience and are a plus.
Depending on the students qualifications and work experience, the pay scale would be $8.77-$10.38 /hr.
Please send a resume and cover letter to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
We intend to hire someone before the beginning of the Fall semester.
