ERASMUS Internship Opportunity

The International Relations Office at the University of Salzburg is pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to complete a traineeship within the Erasmus exchange programme during summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/2021.

The traineeship requires participation in the organisational intricacies of the exchange programmes offered at the university. Language competence in spoken and written German and English must exceed C1.

The duration of the traineeship in the summer semester 2020 would ideally begin as early as possible and can end by 31st July 2020. It would be beneficial for us if the trainee in the winter semester 2020/2021 could start on 1st September 2020 at the earliest.

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.

Please send your detailed application, including a cover letter and CV, by email until the 9th February 2020 to Petra Höpfner.

For further enquiries please contact as well Mrs. Petra Höpfner.
