[05/24/18]   Seeking: Student Research Assistant for June​ History Project
Greetings History Society Members! Prof Seligman is looking for a short-term summer research assistant to help review a large photographic database of colonial-era photographs. The work will be 50 hours at $20/hour (please note for personal budgeting that you'd receive a paycheck for the full amount in August due to CCNY's payment process). The research work will require close analysis of photographs in a digital archive so computer/internet access is a must (either use of CCNY’s library or a personal computer). Prof Seligman would like the research assistant to begin in early June. Ideally, the student would complete the hours over 2-3 weeks. Prof Seligman asks interested students to please email them at [email protected] by May 30th. Feel free to email with questions before this deadline.

In an email, please indicate your historical experience (coursework and any prior research experiences – term papers, original research, internships, etc) and please confirm your availability for early-mid June. Please also include your resume and, if relevant, a list of history courses taken. Prof Seligman will select the research assistant based on experience and availability with priority to students with a background in the following: African history, history of colonialism, and historical research with visual sources.
