A hub of cutting-edge research and teaching on the contemporary Asia region, the AI brings together leading scholars and students to push the boundaries of intellectual inquiry through conferences, seminars, and innovative multidisciplinary initiatives.
The role of the Event Assistant requires someone who is organized and capable of coordinating administrative and other tasks.

Responsibilities include liaising and managing domestic and international speakers, advertising events (creating and distributing/posting promotional flyers, drafting event emails, and submitting event listings), event logistics (including pre-event planning, venue, catering and AV bookings, set-up and tear-down of event venues), and other administrative assistance as required.
The position requires a creative self-motivated individual who can work under minimal supervision, and who is also reliable and punctual. Tasks are expected to be completed accurately, responsibly, and by the appointed deadlines. Students with a strength in aspects of the role are an asset, but we encourage all interested students to apply.
