I need an excellent social science researcher with experience researching and writing academic papers for a research assistant position as part of some independent research that I am doing for a personal project. This job specifically would be for roughly 5 hours of work. There is the possibility of future work, continuing for 10 to 20 hours a week for up to 6 months based on your performance. I will mainly need you to find research articles and primary sources related to a specific topic, and write brief outline summaries of the sources that you do find. You must have access to major research databases, and understand how to use them in order to effectively find information.
Ideally, you have a background in economics, political science, law or international relations and a Masters or are in a PhD program. Please include a writing sample of one of your academic works, as well as a copy of your 1-page resume, including relevant academic background. You must be familiar with standard social science citation format.
Additionally, let me know if you have access to a major research library, I might need some book resources, but the majority of the work will be journal and primary-resource-based.
I need this work done as soon as possible. You must be natively fluent in English. Budget is merely a placeholder. Fluency in Spanish and experience with doing Latin America research is a bonus. I will choose applicants with verified identities over other applicants with similar qualifications.
Skills: science, research, economics, writing, academic-writing
