traineeship contract must comply with both the Erasmus guidelines and the requirements of the
sending (home) institution.
The trainee must have obtained the level of C1 (based on the CEFR framework) in both written and

All Erasmus trainees need to register at the University of Salzburg to receive student status valid for

to liability and accident insurance during their time in Salzburg. In addition, enrolment allows trainees
to attend courses of their choice along with other Erasmus students.
If the trainee is interested in starting the internship in October 2023, a valid enrolment is required for
the summer semester 2023. As of 1 of October, the registration and funding within the framework of
the Erasmus programme is also a precondition.
Please send your application, including a cover letter (max. 2 pages) CV and specification if you are
applying for a full or part-time internship via email by September 1, 2023, to email@example.com.

We are currently looking for cartoonists to illustrate a series of eight cartoons about gender equality and LGBT+ equality.
This call is part of a research project funded by the EU about democratic resilience against attacks towards gender and sexuality equality across Europe.
We are looking for cartoonists who would like to collaborate with social scientists in co-creating cartoons that relay key findings of the research project Push*Back*Lash.
The Push*Back*Lash project is a transdisciplinary project that takes intersectionality to heart and advances the theory and practice of feminism(s) through rigorous, comparative multimethod research in support of the quality of democratic governance in more inclusive European societies. It explores political actors, their agendas, and strategies to promote anti-gender equality in the European Union, using a large methodological palette – surveys, experiments, interviews, focus groups, and participatory theater. Push*Back*Lash is also distinctively solution-oriented.
The project designs and empirically tests counter strategies to overcome the pushback against gender equality and democracy in Europe and seeks to equip pro-equality actors with practical toolkits for responding to anti-gender equality and anti-feminist discursive strategies and backlash tactics. To this end, the project brings together civil society activists, EU experts, and researchers from the fields of political science, sociology, anthropology, communication and media, philosophy, and social psychology from 11 universities and organizations in Europe.
We offer competitive rates for cartoons.
If you are interested in co-creating cartoons with us within the framework of this project, please submit your expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 pm July 15, 2023.
We will get in touch with you for further information.
The new Horizon Europe project Push*Back*Lash that studies the relationship between democracy and the advocacy of/opposition to gender equality was launched on January 30, 2023 in Salzburg, Austria.
On the opening night, the welcome address by Zoe Lefkofridi and Rachel Weston-Eschenbacher’s (UN Women) keynote was followed by a roundtable (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4) about “Challenges to gender equality in the public sphere: politics, labor market, and education” with Andrea Klambauer (Land Salzburg), Anna Schiester (Stadt Salzburg), Sabine Veits-Falk (Stadtarchiv), Martin Weiss (Salzburg Global Seminar). Dzeneta Karabegovic (PLUS) served as a moderator.
During the next two days, consortium members discussed the first phases of project implementation.
