Needed: Researcher for Book Project

This ad states a need for "a researcher/writer to research all known information regarding an historic person. The right candidate will create a timeline and outline of the subjects life, region, and historically relevent events and conditions and include a complete verifiable bibliography. Also included in this project is a 200 page rough draft prose story of the subject to include her life, living conditions, etc with regional authenticity. The right candidate will not have a view against Islam nor a predisposition regarding Muhammeds wives and companions but will have a keen interest Middle East personalities and history during the time of Muhammed."

With an estimated budget of "less than $250," this jobs seems like it would be a lot of work for little pay. If interested in this job, I would definitely recommend negotiating a fair rate for your work.
