International Liaison Officer in Berlin / University of Alberta

Beschäftigungsart: Vollzeit

The University of Alberta (UAlberta) in Edmonton is one of Canada’s top teaching and research universities; with an international reputation for excellence across the humanities, sciences, creative arts, business/commerce, engineering, and health sciences. Home to 38,000 students and 15,000 faculty and staff, the University has an annual budget of $1.8 billion and attracts more than $480 million in sponsored research revenue. It offers close to 400 undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in 18 faculties on five campuses - including one rural and one francophone campus.
The University’s e3 Programs are a unique education abroad program offering students the flexibility to choose from language study, an international internship, and academic coursework, all offered through one summer program. Currently e3 is offered in four diverse locations – Berlin, Germany; Curitiba, Brazil; Grenoble, France; and Washington, DC, USA. Each location takes advantage of the local history, culture, and industry to combine academics with practical work experience opportunities. In cooperation/consultation with the University of Alberta International Education Abroad Program (UAI-EAP), the Liaison Officer (Berlin) will play a major role in the planning and execution of the program, including locating and securing short-term internship placements for all student participants.
