Request for Research Assistant in Turkey

I am looking for a research assistant in Turkey to access the Ottoman Archives on my behalf. They will need to be familiar with 19th century materials, have good English and some knowledge of French. the work will entail locating relevant documents and providing an English translation, which will be emailed to me along with posted copies of the Ottoman versions. The time frame involved is 1868-1909 and the research is largely to do with the Ottoman Navy, but will also involve examining foreign Ministry documents and the files of the Yildiz Palace.
