Hiring A Research Assistant

Looking for a right hand man.

Support VBJ’s writing on this blog:

I’m hiring a research assistant to help with the workload that’s being generated by this New Silk Road journey. The project has grown too large to process everything alone.

Work duties consist of helping me with work related to a book about the New Silk Road (Belt & Road) and related projects.

Daily duties can consist of anything from transcribing interviews to traveling to do interviews.

The only real requirement is that you’re passionate about the project, have time, are technologically capable, and up for just about anything.

The pay is low, the workload is huge, availability must be 24/7, and you need to be able to endure dealing with me everyday.

There is absolutely no reason why any sane person should want to do this.

But, just in case there is some perilously obsessive, ambitious curmudgeon out there looking to gain some experience working in this profession, email me at wadepshepard@gmail.com.
