Unemployed Professors / Adjuncts / Grad Students - Read Joyce and get Paid!
Because the tenure clock does not allow the option of a sane work-life balance and RA's are non-existent at my current location, I am looking to hire someone to regularly assist me with the research, drafting, and editing process for academic articles intended to eventually be submitted for peer review. All thoughts will be my own, though you are welcome to submit feedback.
The reading is interesting and if you are intellectually curious and capable you will love this job.
I currently have several ongoing projects involving Irish Literature that I could hire you for. The ideal candidate needs:
An M.A or higher from a respectable institution
Access to jstor, Taylor-Francis online, and other databases.
Access to a university library, including Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
The ability to annotate pdfs to certain specifications, and to create pdfs from relevant pages in books that are not online
Professional academic writing ability as shown through samples
A facility with Zotero and collaborative google-docs
Skills: academic-writing, research
