Steve Brier, NYCDH member and professor in the PhD program in Urban Education at the CUNY Graduate Center (GC), is looking to immediately hire a graduate research assistant to help support his current academic research work, an examination of the struggle for community control of NYC public schools and CUNY in the late 1960s. The project will culminate in the development of a digital archive on Community Control based on the research materials gathered in the course of the project work. The research assistant’s job, which will occupy 10 or 12 hours a week and pay $20 an hour through the spring semester and possibly the summer, entails scanning text documents at the GC’s New Media Lab, which will then be uploaded to the project’s website as well as working with digitized image and oral history audio files to index and metadata tag them electronically and upload them to the project’s website. Knowledge about and familiarity with the web and basic web-based computer programs is required while ability to use WordPress and Omeka is especially desirable. Master’s and doctoral students, regardless of discipline or track, are especially encouraged to apply. Send an email indicating interest and experience and a copy of a short C.V. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
