The Expert Nation ARC Discovery Project is collecting biographical data from the 1920s and 1930s on university men and women who served in World War I and returned to Australia. The project is led by a team of CIs including Tamson Pietsch (UTS), Julia Horne and Stephen Garton (USyd), Kate Darian-Smith (UTas) and James Waghorne (UMelb) with a project team based at UTS. A Research Assistant is required to work with primary sources to add vital details to the evolving national database. The successful applicant must have experience with digital archiving and data management with programs such as Excel. If successful, the applicant will receive mentoring and be instructed in the use of the Heurist database system.
