Low Temperature Laboratory of the Aalto University will hire 2nd - 4th year students as summer trainees and diploma workers. The trainee period is between June and August unless agreed otherwise. Later it will be possible to get a half- or full-time work in the laboratory and thereby a start for an academic career.
