Oppo Researcher Wanted

Some citywide campaign is looking to hire a researcher, according to this job ad that landed in my inbox. The ad appeared on Jobs That Are Left, a distribution list founded by activist Courtney K. Sieloff, and used by liberal operatives and electeds (like Andrew Cuomo).

I’ll update if I find anything out about which campaign is doing the hiring. Anyway, here’s the ad:
