What We Seek
We seek a strong, intelligent individual to assist Orion Anderson (head of Library of Social Science Book Reviews) and Dr. Koenigsberg with the organization and management of documents in our office.
Dr. Koenigsberg’s focus is on the First World War, Nazism, and the Holocaust. He theorizes on the relationship between the human body and the body political (national “identification”), as well as on the role of sacrificial desire and fantasy in the generation of warfare.
The core of this job is the organization, control and management of documents, including:
- Creation of bibliographies.
- Tracking of the Newsletter.
- Organization of online publications.
- Creation of database of books we are reviewing.
- Creation of database of authors who publish with Library of Social Science.
The position will begin two days a week, with the opportunity to engage in a developmental process—leading to additional days per week, and possibly full-time.
Library of Social Science selects and promotes significant scholarship. Marketing skills are a significant dimension of this position, as the Internet allows us to reach scholars around the world—and to advance knowledge by publishing and coordinating their research.
We are located in Elmhurst (Queens), New York City, an easy twenty minute subway ride from Manhattan.
Please write telling us why you think/feel you are qualified for/capable of performing this job.
