Are you interested in gaining some practical experience in archives and archival processing? The University Libraries are accepting applications for a Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) for the James M. Buchanan Papers Processing Project, to begin Fall 2021 and with the potential to go through Spring 2023. This position includes a yearly stipend of $18,000 (for 2021-22), and CHSS will provide 12 credit hours of in-state tuition, fees, and health insurance per year.
The GRA will assist with arranging and describing the James M. Buchanan papers as a part of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant-funded project. The James M. Buchanan papers consist of 282 linear feet of archival material produced or collected as part of the life and career of Nobel-Prize winning economist James M. Buchanan. Buchanan was a faculty member at George Mason University from 1983-2013, and his work on the relationship between economics, philosophy, and politics continue to be a source of scholarship and debate among economists, historians, and others in the scholarly community and in public discourse.
A background in economics is NOT required for this position, and we encourage applicants from all areas of humanities research!
