Research Assistant (NYC History), Brown Brothers Collection Position Overview: The Brown Brothers Collection is a collaborative, cross-institutional research project supported by a seed grant from the NYU Center for the Humanities and Research Technology, NYU IT, that will develop robust teaching, research, and digital / public humanities resources that leverage the digitized Brown Brothers & Company archives held by the New York Public Library, a key set of sources for New York City’s financial history. The project is seeking a graduate, or advanced undergraduate research assistant to join the team for its use-case pilot phase. The assistant will conduct research related to the history of financial data, accounting practices, banking in 19th-century New York, and slave economies. As part of this phase, you’ll have the opportunity to work on an interdisciplinary team comprising both humanists and data / machine learning specialists. Learn more here.
