The International Elias Canetti Society was founded in 1992 in Ruse/Bulgaria, the birthplace of Elias Canetti. The central goals of the Society include a dedication to researching Canetti’s work, promoting the European integration process and participating in rebuilding civil societal structures in post-communist Bulgaria. The Society’s work encompasses essentially four fields: Cultural mediation, cultural dialogue, civic education and academics. Particular emphasis is placed on cooperation between the countries of the Danube cultural region. The cultural events we organize range from the annual Literature Festival Ruse, through youth events and exhibitions to international conferences.
We have two event locations: the Elias Canetti Centre houses the Austrian Library “Elias Canetti”, seminar rooms, as well as the International Elias Canetti Society’s office rooms. The Canetti House is used in its unrestored state as an alternative venue for concerts, performances or visual arts events. The International Elias Canetti Society succeeded in establishing it as a popular forum for contemporary art and culture in Ruse and Bulgaria. The premises are increasingly used by local initiatives, youth groups, and students for their events and for international gatherings.
To support our team we are looking for a trainee from March 1st, 2019 or the next possible date for a period of six months with the possibility of an extension of six more months.
Important: The traineeship is not remunerated and is therefore aimed especially at students who can apply for Erasmus+ grant to help cover subsistence and travel costs incurred in connection with the traineeship. According to the new rules scholarship can be received during or one year after the completion of the studies as long as one applies for while still a student. For more information please turn to the International Office or Career Center at your university.
We would gladly offer advice and support to all Erasmus+ applicants. We will also help with the search of accommodation on site. The living expenses in Bulgaria are relatively low in comparison to other European countries, whereby Ruse is considered to be a relatively cheap Bulgarian city.
We can testify that for many graduates the traineeship with the Canetti Society represents an important first step in the professional life. After their time in Ruse our trainees find jobs for example as Robert Bosch or DAAD lecturers in Eastern Europe or as project responsible in Germany.
