Open Position: Boston Research Center Research Associate, AY 2020-2021

The Digital Scholarship Group in the Northeastern University Library is happy to announce a job opening for a Northeastern University graduate student for August and the upcoming academic year: Boston Research Center Research Associate. This is an hourly position, for 8-10 hours per week.

The Boston Research Center (BRC), based in the Northeastern University Library, is a digital community history and archives lab. The mission of the BRC is to help bring Boston’s deep neighborhood and community histories to light through the creation and use of new technologies. Through these technologies, Boston residents can share their community’s past, as well as a deeper understanding of how this past shapes our present.

The BRC Research Associate will work on history projects related to Boston neighborhoods. These might include: assistance in oral history and story collecting projects, creation and cleanup of historical data, cataloging items for Boston-related digital archives, outreach for BRC and partner projects, or the creation of project documentation and reports.

No specific background is required, and we welcome applications from incoming graduate students. We typically allow remote work during the academic year. To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to Amanda Rust, a.rust [at], by Wednesday July 29, 2020.
