The COVID-19 Oral History Project (https://asianheritage.commons.gc.cuny.edu) is a collection of images, essays, and video recordings documenting the experience of LaGuardia Community College students, especially those of the Asian descent, during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hiring one or two research assistants for this project in order to analyze the transcripts of the collected interviews.
The primary responsibilities of the research assistants include:
- Coordinate (and possibly conduct) interviews with Asian American students using online conference tools such as Zoom (https://www.zoom.us)
- Proofread transcripts of the recorded interviews by Asian American students using automatic transcription tools such as Temi (https://www.temi.com) and Rev.com (https://www.rev.com)
- Analyze and assign codes on the transcription using DQA tools such as ATLAS.ti (https://cloud.atlasti.com/projects)
We are expecting about 300 hours of work for this project (6 hours * 50 interviews) at the rate of $30 per hour. Preference is given to those who have familiarity with Asian American communities and graduate-level training in qualitative research methods.
If you are interested, please submit your resume and a short statement to Tomonori Nagano (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Thomas Cleary (email@example.com). We are planning to interview candidates by the mid October 2021.
