University of Pittsburgh is seeking a Program Assistant at University of Narva
- 20 November 2020 at 2:20 pm #2037
The Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (REEES) at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking a Program Assistant to work at the University of Tartu’s Narva College in Narva, Estonia on Pitt’s Project Global Officer (Project GO) Russian Language Program from June 5 – August 8, 2021. Sponsored by the Defense Language and National Security Education Office (DLNSEO) at the U.S. Department of Defense, Project GO is a collaborative initiative that promotes critical language education, study abroad, and intercultural dialogue opportunities for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) students. The Pitt Project GO Narva Program offers full scholarships for students enrolled at any accredited college or university in the US for 8 weeks of intensive summer language study in Russian from 2nd through 4th-year level. Students acquire the equivalent of one academic year’s worth of language training, in addition to opportunities to build their inter-cultural competence and travel in the Baltics.
The Program Assistant represents Project GO and the University of Pittsburgh in the host country, oversees the implementation of the Narva program on the ground, and is responsible for ensuring the program is meeting its goals. The Program Assistant reports to the Project GO Program Coordinator at REEES and works with the language instructors and the host university’s local staff while monitoring housing, arranging logistics for the group, advising participants as required, and serving on-call to program participants 24/7 to resolve emergency and other issues as necessary.
The 2020 Project GO program was held in a virtual format. DLNSEO and the University of Pittsburgh will review public health and travel conditions in early spring 2021 to determine whether participants can travel overseas to complete their program in summer 2021. This position is contingent upon the approval of overseas travel for Project GO participants. Program Assistants will only travel to countries which are approved for travel by both the CDC and the State Department. Interested candidates may also be considered for the position of Program Assistant in future summer cycles.
