RESEARCH ASSISTANT WANTED


I am in the midst of writing a book, it's an expansion of this article in Harper's Magazine about the unsolved murder of Steven Pollock and will be published by McSweeny's. The research for this book is extremely demanding and I need someone to assist me. Please respond if you meet the following criteria:
  • You live in New York.
  • You are capable or spending tens or hundreds of hours working on this project with me in New York.
  • You are exceptionally good at both archival and electronic research. 
I am willing to pay for your food and transportation and possibly more depending on how good you are. Please do not respond unless you have read the Harper's article and meet the above criteria.

Hey dude, I'm in NZ and thus completely unable to apply for the position, but I thought I'd point out that your link to the Harper's article is broken anyway.

Thanks, I believe it has been corrected.

You find anybody? It sounds like an interesting topic. I'm a good researcher and have 3 months' supply of lisdexamfetamine, but I don't live in New York. If there's anything that could be done by telecommuting I'm happy to help with it in my free time.

Hi Hamilton,

I've read the full article and am interested in assisting your research. I have a professional background in digital marketing research, and have worked on a number of non-marketing research projects in the past, having written my thesis on ADHD medication regulation. Feel free to follow-up at alexetalbott@gmail.com

Hamilton, wondering if you found anyone? If not I am in Rochester NY and a graduate of RIT which provided me many hours of research for papers. I enjoy your work. Please let me know.

I'm in Italy, so I don't fit your criteria, however I do have excellent research skills, I have an MA in International Relations and a BA in Development Studies and International Relations.

I've worked for foreign policy think-tanks in the Middle East, conducting mostly economic research on renewable energy issues.

I'm also active in the harm reduction community, my Blueligt username is Mental Kenny, you can see my posts there I'm fairly experienced with most things.

I've sent you a short story on FB, you might have received it.

If you need any work done from across the Atlantic give me a shout, I love your work, wouldn't ask for compensation, just want to collaborate to spread knowledge.

Sincerely,

Lucas
