Summer trainees 2011


We will organize laboratory tours for the applicants separately for both LT research and Brain Research Unit. Both tours start at the main lobby of Nanotalo (Puumiehenkuja 2 A, Otaniemi, Espoo)

The tour for LT research takes place Friday 18.2.2011 at 14:30, and lasts for about an hour. Contact person Juho Rysti.

Brain Research Unit will be presented on Thursday 17.2.2011 at 14:30. Contact person Anne Mandel

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.

All those interested in the positions are asked to register by using the enclosed web-form by Wednesday 16th February 2011. Together with the applications we expect to get transcripts of your study records and a free-form curriculum vitae as instructed in the web form. The choice will be made according to the study record so far, taking into account the courses passed, their grading, practical work, and the time it has taken to carry them out. Further information on the lab can be obtained at the laboratory home pages, and the links below to the research group pages.

Summer trainees will be hired in the following research groups (follow the links for further information on the groups and summer jobs in them):

  • µKI Group: Lowest achievable temperatures. Investigations on superfluid helium mixtures and helium crystals (Doc. Juha Tuoriniemi).
  • Nano Theory group: Nonequilibrium quantum mechanics, quantum transport theory, superconductivity, spintronics and quantum nanoelectromechanical systems (Doc. Tero Heikkilä)
