The International Relations Department at the University of Salzburg is pleased to offer an Erasmus traineeship opportunity.
The traineeship requires participation in the organisational intricacies of the exchange programmes offered at the university. A trainee in the International Relations Office can expect to be working in an internationally diverse working environment with colleagues from all over the world. Tasks will vary from day to day, but successful applicants can expect a customer-facing role; confidence in advising students as well as other university employees is of the highest importance.
Language competence in spoken and written German and English must exceed C1 level (based on the CEFR framework). Additional languages are advantageous, as these enable a more personable exchange with the international students.
The traineeship during the next summer term would ideally begin on the 1st February 2020 and should last for at least five months. It can either be a full or part-time position, between 20 and 40 hours per week, for the specified duration. Please note: Interested students looking for an internship to start already this fall 2020, are still welcome to apply. The duration of the traineeship in the upcoming winter semester 2020 would ideally begin as early as possible and can end by 28th of February 2021. It would be beneficial for us if the trainee in the winter semester 2020/2021 could start on 15th September 2020 at the earliest. Applicatns for fall/winter may contact Ms. Leonie Young (details on the University of Salzburg Int. Department's website).
Funding within the framework of the Erasmus programme, as granted by the sending institution, is a prerequisite for this traineeship. The successful applicant will NOT receive payment from the University of Salzburg for this role. The Erasmus rules, as agreed with the home university, will therefore apply to the design of the Erasmus internship contract. The International Relations Office is committed to act in accordance to these requirements.
COVID-19 Update: The University of Salzburg resumes normal teaching and student services on the campus in the upcoming academic year, providing there are no further restrictive regulations imposed. If the government imposes preventative restrictions, we may have to postpone or cancel the traineeship. We will of course inform the successful applicant of any developments that might affect their traineeship. Trainees should keep themselves up to date on the latest COVID-19 measures and act on regulations issued by local, regional and national public (health) authorities.
