NYU Students are eligible to apply to work as Resident Assistants while in Shanghai. Similar to the RA role in NY, the role in Shanghai will allow for you the additional opportunity to help develop the community for the inaugural class of NYU Shanghai. You will also develop skills that will help you interact and truly engage the local Shanghai community.
Please click here to review the position description and contact David Pe (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions. The freshman orientation for Shanghai is a bit earlier than usual, it begins on August 12th and continues for 3 weeks before the start of the fall semester. The RA position/training will begin on August 1st. I know for some of you that means changes to summer travels, internships, jobs, etc. We recognize that this may have a financial impact as some of you are working through the summer to save for your semester studies. In addition to Room and Board, we are also going to pay for the cost of your round-trip airfare to and from Shanghai.
Please submit a cover letter and resume and email it to: Patty Xu and Hao Guo at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday April 19, 2013. In your cover letter, please indicate why you would be a good fit for an RA position and your interest in working with the first pioneering class of NYU Shanghai.
