Hiring Research Assistants for Winter-Spring 2023

Deadline: 12:00 pm on Monday, January 30, 2023

The People’s Archive of Rural Ontario (PARO) is a knowledge mobilization initiative led by faculty at the University of Guelph. It mobilizes and amplifies rural voices and stories to contribute to the revitalization of rural Ontario. PARO takes inspiration from the rural archives of India (PARI) and Nova Scotia (PARNS) with the aim of establishing a freely accessible online archive and community, where everyday people can tell everyday stories about everyday lives in and about rural Ontario.

We are currently recruiting two paid student Research Assistants to solicit, and curate (South) Asian stories based in rural Ontario. The positions are funded by the Canada India Research Centre for Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) and a SSHRC Insight grant.

The positions are available from February 2023 to April 2023 with the possibility of extension until June 2023.

Hours of work will be between 5 to 7 hours per week. It is anticipated that all/most work will be done remotely. This position pays $22 to $25 per hour.

The position will enhance the Research Assistants’ knowledge about racialized minorities and rural Ontario, skills in interviewing, ethical research, and editing/producing content (written, audio, video, photography).

Please submit: Up-to-date CV; a short statement of interest (not exceeding 250 words) describing relevant experience and your interest in PARO; and a writing sample (or a sample of your audio, video, or photographic work).

Please email your application to with the subject heading “Application for Research Assistant” by January 30, 2023.
